Bojagi is the traditional Korean folk art of making wrapping cloths. Bojagi, first sewn in the 15th century by a few nameless women in small villages, now inspires many influential artists of the 21st century throughout the world. Bojagi has been introduced to the western world over the past 30 years, and Korea Bojagi Forum 2012 is designed to provide a meaningful and comprehensive multicultural survey of Bojagi, exploring its origin, materials, uses, historical background, and creative transformations.
