Why this is a
Masterpiece

The ramie bears a great indigo color from traditional natural dye art techniques. The shapes of quilted pieces do not fall behind modern aesthetics. This is a product of outstanding artistic skill and design as well as superior needlework.

History of the Object
"Bo" is an everyday embroidery item which is both practical and decorative. This "Jogakbo" (Korean traditional quilt) originally belonged to the Son Taegi family and was passed down to its descendant, the Son Hyeon family. At present, it is preserved by director, Kim Jihee, a daughter-in-law of the family.
