Jogakbo, or patchwork bojagi, embodies the philosophy of recycling, as they are made from remnants of leftover fabric. Thoughtfully arranged shapes and colors in bojagi often show a very modern and abstract compositions.
Ssamsol is a durable and decorative seam technique where you use two different seam allowances. One seam allowance is twice the width of the other one, so it can cover the smaller seam allowance.
Using this Ssamsol technique, Youngmin will teach ‘Ssamsol Jogakbo’ construction.
