Bojagi Conference

Bojagi, Korean wrapping cloths, have been used for hundreds of years to wrap gifts, carry items both mundane and sacred, to cover ritual offerings, and more. Traditionally these square pieces of cloth were made from silk, cotton, hemp, and ramie and might be hand-embellished with embroidery.

 

If you’re interested in learning more abotu bojagi, or if you’re a maker interested in connecting with others, then you might consider attending the 2014 Korea Bojagi Forum in the Jeju Islands, Korea (which is also the capitol of Korea’s persimmon dyeing tradition, which will also be featured in the events). There will be exhibitions, speakers, workshops, and more all focused on bojagi and gal-oht (Korean persimmon dyeing).
