Norigae (hangul: 노리개) is a typical, traditional Korean accessory that is hung from a woman’s jeogori goreum (coat strings) or hanbok chima (skirt) and so on. Three parts norigae with bat ornaments A norigae can be divided into 4 parts: the ddidon (hangul : 띠돈; hanja: 帶金) a hook (either a separate accessory or additional knots) to attach the norigae to the hanbok, the paemul (hangul : 패물) the main ornament of the norigae, the maedeup (hangul : 매듭) the knots of the norigae, and the sul (hangul : 술) the tassels. The norigae’s function as a decorative pendant is both a good-luck charm hoped to bring something such as eternal youth, wealth or many sons (depending on its shape), as well as a fashion accessory. Usually, the norigae from the parents’ or in-laws’ home was passed down to descendants. Norigaes have various shapes derived from nature or from everyday life. They are divided into samjaks (hangul : 삼작; hanja: 三作) and danjaks (hangul : 단작; hanja: 單作), and samjaks can then be divided again into daesamjaks and sosamjaks. Daesamjaks and sosamjaks have the same form, but each one’s paemul is different. Dimensions: Height - width -
