What is a Bojagi?

The word Bojagi roughly translates as wrapping or covering cloth and is the over-arching name given to this type of stitched textile.

Bojagi have played an important role in traditional Korean culture and have been used to wrap, carry, and store objects as well as for religious rituals and marriages. These functional items were made not as a pastime hobby but were an integral part of daily life.
