The GOT series was discovered in the process of asking what traditional object of Korean culture could deliver the spirit of Korean craftsmen to today’s world and simultaneously be unique, creative, and appealing to the public.
The traditional Korean hat, got, served a dual purpose as an item to cover the face from the sun as well as to reveal one's social status. For the GOT series, instead of the horsehair or long, thin strips of bamboo traditionally used, slender mother-of-pearl strips were inlaid, one by one, to the brim held up by a cone or cylinder. While the traditional got shielded faces from the sun, GOT instead powerfully emits the radiant shine of the mother-of-pearl.
