Bojagi is a Korean textile art that has some similarities to western quilting. I have studied bojagi in Korea and I continue to design and teach with it. If a student asks for a good reference book on the technique, this is where I will point them.
It is full of wonderful photography and art work. It has a nice balance of the history of bojagi in Korean culture, contemporary forms and techniques for people to try it for themselves.
This is the best book on bojagi (Pojagi) that I've seen in English. Great for textile artists or even quilters who want to learn about a different technique.

Discovering something new....Reviewed in the United Kingdom on August 24, 2020
I didn't know about the textile traditions of Korea and found this enlightening. I just love how the author works with organzas and other sheer fabrics.
