Bojagi is the traditional Korean textile art of wrapping cloth and patchwork that have various functions, such as decorative, religious, and symbolic uses.
For my final project for Bojagi & Beyond with Professor Chunghie Lee, I chose to create two wearable pieces with inherently contrasting functions and hues but with complementary bojagi patchwork and color palettes.
