If you haven’t seen the “Wrapping Traditions: Korean Textiles” exhibition at the Museum of Craft and Folk Art in San Francisco, then perhaps you should take some time out of your summer schedule and take a gander at it.

Through October 22, the museum’s exhibit curated by Chunghie Lee features works by over 65 international artists. Each artist did their own interpretation of the Korean textile Bojagi (the traditional Korean wrapping cloths were once used in formal ceremonies and daily activities).
