Recently, we released our KORE Paisley design as a part of our S/S 22 collection. This design has rapidly become one of our most popular releases, namely due to the stunning traditional pattern seen in the print. But where did our inspiration come from?
Traditional Korean patterns are seen as visual art; and are detailed with symbolism, value, and emotion. These prints often capture the beauty of nature, longing for a utopia, affection, and the prayers for good fortune.'

The particular traditional pattern seen in the KORE Paisley tee is a geometric print, and can be found on everything from silk fabric to Korean desserts. The pattern has been seen on art and architecture dating back hundreds of years, showing its longevity and the cultural significance.

As a brand that prides itself on creating streetwear with substance, we decided to incorporate this beautiful geometric pattern into our KORE Paisley design in a subtle nod to one of the most common types of patterns seen in traditional Korean art.
