Beurs van zijde, dient als accessoire bij vrouwenkleding. Koreaanse kleding had geen opbergzakken, zodat geld of andere accessoires in dergelijke losse tasjes mee moesten worden gedragen. Deze tasjes of beursjes genaamd ‘chumŏni’ (ook het hedendaagse woord voor (broek)zak) worden onderverdeeld naar vorm waarbij rondvormige tasjes ‘turu-jumŏni,’ of 'rond zakje' worden genoemd, en de rechtere gevouwen types ‘kwi-jumŏni' vanwege de 'oortjes' aan de zijkant. This embroidered satin purse shows how the embroiderer beautified even a small accessory. It is secured with decorative voilet knotted ties. Due to the fact that traditional Korean clothes – with the exception of certain vests – do not have pockets, personal belongings are carried in a pouch attached to the belt or stored in the sleeve of the costume. These personal belongings may range from smoking equipment and sewing kits to scented oil and other perfumed substances. These pouches, called ‘chumŏni’ (which is also the present-day term for 'pocket’), can be divided into two types according to their shape: Round-shaped models that are closed by tying a cord around the top are called ‘turu-jumŏni,’ or 'round pouch', whereas the straighter, folded type is referred to as ‘kwi-jumŏni,’ or 'ear pouch,' because of the two ear-like pieces sticking out at the sides.
