An adventure to the fabric area of Dongdaemun brought so many sights and sounds today. Floors of stalls filled with buttons, rows of stalls filled with lace, elastic, zippers- and entire buildings filled with fabric! We spotted a gentleman carrying one of these backpacks today- Loaded on his back and filled with huge rolls of fabric laying horizontally across the backpack. The man carrying the fabric
must be some sort of courier. It reminded me of how Korea must have conducted business during a simpler time- wooden backpacks instead of motorcycles/scooters.
