Saeksilnubi is a Korean traditional craft that uses two layers of fabrics, cords made with hanji (Korean mulberry paper), and colorful threads to make a quilted texture. Hanji cord or cotton cord were used as a batting or stuffing.
This type of quilting was utilitarian in its purpose. Mostly used in the making of tobacco pouches, this technique strengthened the fabric, made it lighter and more compact and even protected from humidity.
Join us to learn about a very unique and beautiful Korean quilting tradition.
