Sieve is a must-have tool for families that are used in various ways, such as selecting various cooking powder and grain products from soy sauce making, washing grain, and drying.

The materials for making the frame are used by pine trees, straw trees, pine roots, and bamboo, while horse tail hairs and ox tail hairs are used as materials for chameu, which are made from natural materials, are difficult to keep for a long time. It can be filled with cloth, nylon cloth, wire, etc. Depending on the hole in the sieve, it is divided into a shoulder, dorsal, medium, powder, and gounce. The shoulder is filled with wire or finely chopped bamboo with the widest sieve. It is common for dorsal fins to be woven with wire in a narrower sieve than the shoulder. The middle distance is also called the middle body, and is filled with cloth. The powder is filled with a small sieve with horse tail feathers, but recently with nylon cloth. The gouge is a thin, tiny hole and is filled with horse tail hairs.

Chemeugi is a traditional craftsmanship that contains the wisdom of our ancestors. On August 10, 1998, Choi Seong-cheol was recognized as the holder of the intangible cultural property and passed down our unique sieve making techniques. As of August 24, 2012, there was no holder.
