The Naju City Natural Dyeing Cultural Foundation signed an MOU with SUNY Korea on April 24th to revitalize the natural dyeing fashion industry.

Jongsoo Kim, the Vice President of SUNY Korea, and Leonard Bess, a professor of Fashion Design at SUNY Korea FIT, visited the Korea Natural Dyeing Museum on the day that the agreement was signed.

The two organizations signed the MOU to cooperate and develop a strategic solution related to natural dyeing education. They also agree to establish a network of global natural dyeing fashion markets.

The background of both institutions reveals a new innovative approach to education. SUNY Korea is the first American university in Korea to have both undergraduate and graduate programs, opening in Songdo, Incheon in 2012. Over 1,000 students from 35 countries are studying at SUNY Korea Stony Brook and FIT, two of the most prominent universities in the New York State University (SUNY) system. Students receive a US diploma when they graduate. 

The Naju City Natural Dyeing Cultural Foundation is the world's only natural dyeing foundation that was founded in Naju City in 2016. In 2018, the foundation signed an MOU related to natural dyeing education with the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) and is working on several mid- to long-term projects.
