What is Bojagi?

Bojagi are perhaps the most unique form of Korean textile art. They were used to wrap, carry or store things ranging from precious objects to everyday clothes and common household goods, and were also used to cover foods. Koreans believed that by wrapping an object, ‘bok’ (good fortune) could be enclosed within a bojagi. Many surviving bojagi are from the Joseon dynasty (1392-1910).

Various kinds of fabric were used in bojagi, including silk, cotton, hemp, and ramie. Jogakbo, patchwork bojagi, were made from scraps and remnants of fabrics. Beautifully constructed jogakbo were the result of frugal, practical fabric recycling. Bojagi can be described as a true form of abstract expressionism created by Korean women.
