Johan Launches Unique Golf Ball Markers Inspired by Traditional Korean Art

LOS ANGELES, May 30, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — JOHAN, an emerging golf and lifestyle brand, is thrilled to announce the launch of its latest product: golf ball markers inspired by traditional Korean art. This innovative collection marries the rich cultural heritage of Korea with the modern spirit of golf, offering enthusiasts a unique blend of tradition and sport.

The new collection of golf ball markers is a collaboration with TUKATA, the 2018 National Craft Design Star Product Development Contest award-winning brand in Korea. Fusing modern shapes, individualistic character, and cultural symbolism, these markers are more than just a tool for golfers; they are a celebration of Korean heritage and artistry, designed to bring a touch of elegance and personality to the golf course.

JOHAN’s founders, Andy and Hannah Han, expressed excitement about the new launch, stating, “We wanted to create something that not only serves a practical purpose on the golf course but also connects golfers with Korean culture in a fun way. Each marker tells a story making them a perfect addition to any golfer’s collection.”

The JOHAN x TUKATA golf ball marker collection is inspired by “Sipjangsaeng” (십장생), which refers to the Ten Symbols of Longevity often used in traditional Korean art. Each golf ball marker represents different qualities of well-being and serves as a visual representation of longevity and cultural idealism. The collection includes:

Weather Elements

  • “WOON the Cloud”- optimism and hope
  • “HAE the Sun”- energy and enthusiasm

Natural Landscapes

  • “SAN the Mountain”- strength and stability
  • “DOL the Rock”- dependability and loyalty

Plants and Animals
