Fashion, Jewelry, and Interior Design Materials All Under One Roof in Dongdaemun

Dongdaemun Shopping Complex


Dongdaemun Shopping Town is the place to find great deals on a wide variety of fashion, jewelry, and interior design materials, having served designers in the Seoul Metropolitan Area, and Korea as a whole, for almost 50 years now. It’s packed during the day with young fashion students and designers looking for the best deals on quality fabric, lace, embroidery, and other craft materials to complete their projects, older women shopping around for bedding and curtains, and soon-to-be brides looking for hanbok for their wedding.


The market can feel overwhelming at times, with hundreds of small stalls mostly selling textiles and other products to assist with any fashion, jewelry, or interior design project. It's divided into four blocks, A, B, C, and N, each taking up a separate building, but all interconnected. At times it can feel like you’re stuck in a maze, but the stalls are actually organized by block and number, so if you know the number of the stall you’re looking for, it won’t be hard to find. If you’re an aspiring young fashion or interior designer, this is the place to check out, but it’s best to go with a Korean friend who’s familiar with the market rather than on your own, especially if you don't speak much Korean.
