What are Dol Hanboks?
Dol hanboks are baby hanboks that are worn by babies on their first birthday (Dol). In the past, a baby's Dol was considered extremely important because many babies were not fortunate to survive famine, wars, harsh weather, and diseases. If a baby did survive, the family saw it as a blessing and threw a first birthday party (Doljanchi) to thank the gods, celebrate, and further bless their baby by dressing their baby with a Dolbok and eating certain foods like noodles.
The entire Doljanchi is spectacularly filled with love, laughter, blessings, and traditional Korean food. Not only is it a celebration of the first year of life, but it's also a celebration of the future of the baby and the many good fortunes that the family hopes will come to him or her later in life.
The dol hanbok worn by a baby on their first birthday is a Korean tradition that's passed down to this day and our dol hanboks will make your baby look irresistibly cute while they celebrate their birthday and play Doljabi.
