Korean embroidery is a representative and traditional craft that has been wholly preserved from the Goryeo Dynasty. Colorful pictures, patterns, and scripts are embroidered one stitch at a time, realistically reproducing everything in the world on silk and satin. Different techniques and a selection of needles and threads are used to create three-dimensional forms and styles. In traditional Korean society, embroidered ornaments were a status symbol. There were strict embroidery-related regulations for the attire of members of the royal family, and embroidery was used to display the majesty and dignity of the royal family. Nowadays, embroidered products are high-end gifts. The embroidered pendant and totems in the image are full of symbolism. The tortoise symbolizes long life, while the mandarin ducks symbolize a perfectly harmonious married couple.
