    Korean Wrapping Clothes (Bojagi)

    This web collection highlights bojagi from the museum collection. Bojagi is a general term for all wrapping cloths in Korea. Most bojagi were made with specific people and functions in mind, like when mothers crafted bojagi or their daughters before weddings. bojagi were viewed more as craft pieces than artwork, and it is only in recent decades that the aesthetic value of bojagi was rediscovered. By sewing together small, used cloth of various shapes and skillfully juxtaposing vibrant colors, the makers of these bojagi created an exciting design akin to modern abstract art.
