Discovering the tradition of Korean knot making

First made famous during the court of the Lee dynasty in ancient Seoul, the art of Korean knot making was initially used to decorate the wedding gowns of brides-to-be. Today the art has transcended every day life (wall hanging, key chains etc) but very few knots are still produced in the traditional manner. At Kim Eun-Young's studio in central Seoul, guests can watch the artist spin her brilliant creations and learned about her perfected technique, which starts with the silk worm and ends with elaborate designs.
