Cotton, which is made of cotton, was imported from Yuan Dynasty of China in the late Goryeo Dynasty and was mostly made up of cotton clothing from the late Goryeo Dynasty to the late Joseon Dynasty. Since the early Joseon Dynasty, it has been rapidly spreading to the extent that it serves as a currency along with rice, and was one of the major trade items sent to Japan. Moomyung is a traditional Korean fabric that is divided into Gwangmok, Oksangmok, and Western wood. In addition to the materials for clothing, it was used most often as materials for making bedclothes and other household items.

The production process is divided into wood-burning pear and harvesting, seeding and cotton-riding, cocooning, threading, cotton-flying, and cotton-making. Seedware and cotton farming are the process of removing seeds from cotton and smoothing cotton using an instrument called cottonwool. It is the process of rubbing cotton on a horseboard, and thread is pulled out using a spinning wheel, and thread is wound around the rhythm. The thickness of the thread determines how many rolls will fit in a width. After the loom and grass-eating process of tightening the cotton yarn after the cotton flying, use the loom to squeeze the cotton.

Moomyungjjjagi was designated as an intangible cultural asset to enrich the clothing of the Korean people and to protect and inherit the traditional techniques that contain the joys and sorrows of the Korean people. Baek Moon-ki, a functional holder living in Seongju-gun, North Gyeongsang Province, is continuing his career.
