Yeongdo Velvet was established in 1960. In the beginning, Japan, Germany, and the US sent imports to Korea. Youngdo used fabric to create bridal wear and accessories. Shortly afterward, Yeongdo Velvet’s founder created an exportable, high-quality velvet for multiple uses. And due to stiff competition, Yooungdo Velvet invested 40 billion Won in purchasing high-tech looms, dying processes, and various factories. The textiler has since become the leader in fabric manufacturing. Youngdong velvet has been used for sets and costumes for some of the most popular historical dramas. Titles include Hwajeong, Gu Family book, The King’s Face, and Secret Door.
