Korea Craft & Design Foundation (KCDF) is a public organisation under the patronage of the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism in South Korea.

Founded to promote and support Korean craft and design, KCDF plays an important role in developing a global awareness and understanding of Korea’s rich craft and design heritage.

The organisation provides opportunities to experience Korean culture through the presentation of contemporary design objects, many of which remain at the heart of Korean daily life. It pursues a variety of projects relating to industry-led and academic research, exhibitions, education and publishing with a range of partner institutions.
