VIIN COLLECTION


빈(VIIN)은 조선 시대 왕세자의 아내를 뜻하던 세자빈(世子嬪)에서 그 이름을 따왔습니다. 빈 컬렉션은 한국 전통 수공예에 담긴 단아하고 격조 높은 삶의 빛깔을 현대에 전합니다. 

 

‘VIIN’ comes from the pronunciation of Chinese character ‘嬪’, which was used in Joseon dynasty to refer to a crown princess. VIIN Collection portrays to the modern society the elegant life style embodied in traditional Korean quilting crafts.

빈 컬렉션은 디자이너 강금성의 수공예 생활 예술 브랜드입니다. 4대가 함께 사는 집안에서 자란 강금성은 친가와 외가의 세 분 할머니로부터 명문가 여인들에게 전해지던 삶의 지혜와 예술 안목을 배웠습니다. 화학 제품이나 기계가 없던 시절, 오직 명민한 생각과 예리한 손끝에서 태어난 전통 생활 공예품. 빈 컬렉션의 제품은 우리 전통에 따라 자연에서 얻은 좋은 재료와 정성스러운 손 바느질로 사람이 직접 만들되, 요즘의 생활 환경을 배려해 재치있는 아이디어를 더했습니다. 

 

The VIIN Collection is created by Geum-seong Kang, the handicraft designer. She was raised in a family where four generations lived together, and learned from her three grandmothers all about the wisdom of life and skills in the domestic arts passed from generation to generation. The VIIN Collection aims to re- introduce goods made only with naturally produced materials and human skill as was done in the past when there were no synthetic materials. This unique feature of the VIIN Collection has already earned them an internationalreputation.
