Small Bojagi Wraps by artist Youngmin Leeasian artmuseum store
These hand stitched bojagi are made by Korean-born artist Youngmin Lee. She holds a master’s degree in fashion design and a bachelor’s degree in clothing and textiles. She has presented numerous workshops, classes and demonstrations on Korean arts and crafts. Bojagi have many uses, including as gift wrapping, to carry items in, and used in wedding ceremonies, and in Buddhist rites.
Bojagi flourished during the Joseon Dynasty (1392–1910), although their beginnings appear to be from the Three Kingdoms Period. The earliest surviving example is from the twelfth century, and these early clothes were originally used in a Buddhist context, as tablecloths or coverings for sutras.
