I craft textiles by hand. In particular, I craft bojagi, Korean wrapping cloth, and do hand embroidery. The primary function of bojagi is to wrap as well as to cover, to store, and generally to carry things such as jewelry, bedding, books and clothes. Bojagi is used for not only decorative and ceremonial functions but also practical purposes. All my bojagi are hand-sewn and hand-embroidered. And some of the fabric is hand-dyed with plants and the raw materials of Asian medicine. According to their intended use, my bojagi vary in size and material. My current works are a mixture of traditional and contemporary, with modern color combinations. My aim is to create something new, modern and unique which will generate curiosity among viewers.
