A Crafty Trip to Seoul - Traditional Pincushion

This is a traditional Korean pincushion
made from silk fabric
and stitched by hand using silk thread.

This pincushion is sewn using
the traditional Korean patchwork technique.
Bright and contrasting fabric colours!
Contrasting colour thread is also used!

It is from one of the shops
in Ssamziegil Mall.

Ssamziegil Mall has an unique architectural design;
each level is connected in the form
of a spiral-like stairway.

This mall has over 70 shops including handicraft stores,
souvenir shops, art galleries,
restaurants and more...

This is my most favourite place...
which is located in the heart of Insadong.
