Korean Textile(Fabric) Arts: Kyubang arts and crafts

 

[pix_dropcap]Ky[/pix_dropcap]ubang - which stands for women’s quarters or women’s living room, was used in Joseon Dynasty, as a place dedicated for women in the house. ‘Kyubang’, a room in the main building of a Korean traditional house, is a concept reflecting the influence of Confucianism which divided the social status between men and women. The room was a space where women can freely express their thoughts onto arts and crafts.
Therefore although ‘Kyubang’ was a closed concept to separate women from men, it unintentionally acted as a space for women to freely express their artistic energy. Although Korean traditional textile art has blossomed on a possibly uncomfortable subject of sex discrimination, as a result it could create such a complete and rich culture.
