About the event
The Korean hanbok has a rich history dating back centuries. It reflects Korea's cultural heritage, with distinct styles for different social classes. Its origins can be traced to the Three Kingdoms period (57 BC-668 AD). Over time, the hanbok evolved, incorporating various influences while preserving its elegance and symbolism. Today, it remains an integral part of Korean cultural identity, worn on special occasions and festivals. Join us at a BASS members' home to learn more.

Seomi will bring her hand dyed silk scarfs to offer for sale. These are something beautiful to own or to give as a gift.
