During the Edo Period (1603-1867), farmers did not wear clothes made of cotton; instead, they wore layers of clothes made from hemp to withstand the cold.
The women from the farming villages then began to stitch cotton thread into the hemp cloth in necessary places to reinforce the fabric and keep the body warm.
The product of these women’s knowledge, those who made a living amongst the harsh nature of the northern country, can be seen today through “Kogin” embroidery.
