This is a great little shop to pick up slightly more contemporary takes on the traditional Korean souvenir or gift. It specializes in small but artfully crafted accessories, such as neckties, pouches, fans, and picture frames, mainly fashioned out of cloth in rich traditional colors.
Prices are low to moderate, and care is visible in everything down to the gift-wrapping, making this a godsend for anyone seeking to polish off a bunch of present-buying in one fell swoop.
