the Symbol

The Symbol of Chris Han's Natural Crafts. March 22, 2012
     I'm sure we all have done it. Searching for "the Symbol" that represents your unique personality. I too have been searching for my own unique symbol for a longtime. And one day, I've combined my initials and Korean traditional 'Su' symbol, 수자문to create my very own.

The 'Su' symbol is derived from a Chinese character 'shòu'  meaning longevity. Traditionally 'Su' symbol has been used during the time of Korean wedding and other ceremonies. Wishing for a long healthy lives of newlyweds and elders, the symbols were engraved on gift boxes, tablewares and furniture.
