Bojagi (Korean Wrapping Cloth) Boxed Notecard Set
By putting pen to paper -- it might seem old-fashioned -- but shows you care! The inside of the cards are blank so you can include personalized messages. And use the sturdy storage box for keepsakes or post you receive in return.
Perhaps the most extraordinary craft produced by Korean women of the Joseon dynasty was the bojagi, a cloth used for a variety of purposes ranging from covering food to wrapping important documents. This particular piece would have been placed over a meal arranged on a dining table. In the Joseon culture of restraint and austerity, women were taught to be frugal; bojagi were frequently constructed from small scraps of fabric leftover from other projects, making their creation an exercise in design. Evoking an air of modernism, some bojagi have been compared to the work of twentieth-century artists Paul Klee (Swiss, 1879–1940) and Piet Mondrian (Dutch, 1872–1944).
