35 new products that were selected as Korea Premium Products 2016 by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism last month are now available under the K-Ribbon Selection label.

The collection can be roughly divided into four categories: Hanbok, Hansik dishes, food and handicrafts. The products include 11 handicrafts such as jewelry and brassware, 13 hanbok garments, a set Hansik menu and 10 groceries.

These products are available in 12 pop-up stores across the country through November 9th, including the K-Style Hub in Seoul, the Contents Korea Lab in Busan and the Asia Culture Center in Gwangju.

They can also be found on Naver’s Store Farm, Makers with Kakao, and the Korea International Trade Association’s Kmall24 website.

In countries like the Philippines, Spain, Japan and Hong Kong, they are being introduced in the local Korean cultural centers and various shopping malls.

“We plan to further develop the product range under the K-Ribbon Selection label and offer creative and well-made products that tell a story,” said Cho Yoonsun, Minister for Culture, Sports and Tourism. “Our ministry will work to raise awareness of Korea’s premium products so that they can be recognized as works of art in the market.”
