Amy Butler 보자기

When I look at Amy Butler's latest quilt idea I see a Korean bojagi. Bojagi are Korean cloths made from small scraps of fabric. These colorful textiles were traditionally used to wrap and carry items. However, these days Koreans make elegant bojagi as coasters, quilts, and decorative wall hangings.

With the recent surge in interest in Korean culture, bojagi classes are now offered to tourists around Seoul.
