A Crafty Trip to Seoul - Handmade Souvenir

 I love this handmade brooch!
A beautiful traditional craft from
one of the shops in Insadong,
which is located in the heart of Seoul city.

Insadong Street is one of the most memorable attractions
with many stores specialising in a wide variety of goods...
traditional clothings - Hanbok, traditional paper - Hanji,
traditional teas, pottery & folk crafts.

It is hand embroidered
with a mungung-hwa flower on it...
I was told by the shop assisstant that this flower,
also known as the Rose of Sharon - Hibiscus Syriacus
is the national flower of South Korea.

This handmade brooch is beautifully made!
