As an alternative to western storytelling, "One Upon a Time" is often replaced in Korean folklore with, "Back When Tigers Used to Smoke."

This phrase is used to represent events taking place long, long ago. The Tiger, a symbol for courage, power, and protection stands proud in his Korean Hanbok, smoking tobacco with a common magpie perched on his pipe. When tobacco was first introduced into Korean society, people of all walks of life rich and poor consumed it in plenty. Back when tigers used to smoke embodies a time when all were equal - human and animal in the land of the tigers.

To ensure product longevity, please consider and follow the instructions below:

  • Warm/Cold water wash- Keep water temperatures under 30 degrees Celsius.
  • Garments that are stained due to grass or playing conditions should be washed immediately to avoid stains from drying and setting. Leaving garments in kit bags will cause odors and possibly permanent stains.
  • Extremely stained garments should be pre-soaked with regular detergent or non-bleach based stain removers, then rinsed in cold water, and washed immediately after without allowing the garments to dry in between stages.
  • Air dry and/or hang dry garmets- tumble dry on low heat if absolutely necessary.
  • Socks and/or any dye-knitted garments separately. Washing with lighter coloured sublimated items in particular, could cause dye migration from socks to sublimated item.
  • Do not Iron
  • Avoid abrasive surfaces- Do not wash with equipment, and take special precaution to avoid Velcro in particular.
