Inspired by artifacts from ancient tombs in Yeonggang-dong and Hwangseong-dong in Gyeongju and after studying paintings dating to Tang China, the rich style of aristocratic women of the Unified Silla period is reproduced here with beautifully patterned fabric. Patterns were dyed on two kinds of silk fabric of different thickness and transparency. Jeogori was produced by overlaying the two different silk fabrics, and chima was made with lightweight silk dyed in blue and patterned with silk.
