From Daejeon to Seoraksan to Busan to Seoul. Our S.Korea road trip last October (2010).
I'm happy to see that so many people in South Korea have shared this video. I really wanted to show South Korea's beauty to people that are not familiar with it, but it's great others back in S.K. find it to be a heartfelt look into their country.
This capsule collection was inspired by designs found in traditional Korean doors and windows known as A Ja Sal Mun. Dating back to the 1300's, the doors were constructed from wooden frames and special paper from the inner bark of the Korean Mulberry Tree known as Hanji. It is one of the earliest artistic attempts in combining design and function as the doors act as natural humidifiers and air temperature regulators, harmonizing the relationship between nature and people. Textured leather panels were thoughtfully cut in different shapes and constructed to emulate our interpretation of traditional Korean aesthetics. The natural leathers will age beautifully and soften with use and time.
