For this scarf design Erin took inspiration from a centuries old Korean tradition of wrapping objects with beautiful quilted textiles called pojagi. Historically, pojagi were often created by Korean women as colorful outlets for their creative energies and were utilized in a myriad of ways throughout daily life. Serving purposes as varied as a food warmer to a special wrapping for a marriage proposal, the pojagi is an iconic Korean motif. Any gift wrapped in a handmade pojagi was a symbol of respect for the gift and a symbol of affection and goodwill toward the recipient.
It is with these special cultural connotations in mind that Erin approached her Pojagi scarf design while applying her minimalist and modern aesthetic. In layering a considered colorway along with imperfect, hand drawn geometric elements, Erin employs her much loved signature surface design style to create a classic and sophisticated scarf.
