A bojagi is a traditional Korean art form creating wrapping cloths. They have many uses including carrying, wrapping, covering, or protecting objects. Min-bo or chogak bo are "patchwork" bojagi made of leftover scraps of fabric and typically sewn by mothers and grandmothers of the household. Seams are neatly pressed and entirely enclosed, giving the effect of stained glass when held up to light. Many are never used, attesting to their preservation as gestures of love and blessings. 

The earliest surviving examples, from the early Joseon dynasty (1392–1910), were used in a Buddhist context, as tablecloths or coverings for sutras.
