Introduction

Ganghwa Hwamunseok, Korea's only rush-weaving handicraft, is a cultural legacy inherited from Goryeo (the ancient Korean state) period, and is a product that is exclusively produced in Ganghwa-gun.
To preserve and develop its historic rush-weaving handicrafts, Ganghwa-gun constructed Hwamunseok Cultural Center at Yangoh-ri Songhae-myeon, the craft's place of origin.
Visitors to the cultural center will be able to view the individual features and transformations of Hwamunseok in addition to the past, present and future of rush-weaving handicrafts.
