What is Bojagi?

Bojagi, originally are wrapping cloths originating from the 14th century in ancient Korea. Korean women in Choson Dynasty (1392-1910), from royalty to commoners, saved scraps of silk, cotton, ramie or linen from making Hanbok, traditional Korean clothing, to create  Bojagi  which are generally square in shape and are of varying sizes.  Bojagis were used to wrap, store, or transport everyday items or to cover prepared foods.  After the 20th century, people started considering bojagi as works of art because of its beauty and geometrical and abstract designs.

What is Hanbok?

Hanbok is the traditional Korean dress. It is often characterized by vibrant colors and simple lines without pockets. Although the term literally means "Korean clothing", hanbok today often refers specifically to hanbok of Choson Dynasty and is worn as semi-formal or formal wear during traditional festivals and celebrations. The modern hanbok does not exactly follow the actual style as worn in Chosŏn dynasty since it went through some major changes during the 20th century for practical reasons.
