Tutorial: Pojagi Piecing the Modern Way


Pojagi is a historic Korean art form of patchwork in both form and function. The International Quilt Study Center & Museum says:

“Patchwork pojagi, called chogak po, had many uses. They served to cover, wrap, store, and carry objects in the common person’s activities of daily life. They were used as tablecloths, to deliver a marriage proposal, to carry possessions on a journey, and to adorn and protect sacred writings… Wrapping a gift in a specially made pojagi communicated respect for the object and good will toward the recipient. Each patch and stitch added by the maker was like a prayer of good will that would enfold and carry the gift.”
