Little may know that Korea possesses a long history of quilting. Jogakbo, or Korean patchwork, dates back to about 200 years and is a custom that comes very naturally. The silhouette of hanbok (Korean traditional clothing) is curved, like the rounded sleeves, there were always pieces of fabric left. Naturally, women made use of them but now you can find Korean patchwork in all forms; from blankets to clothing and bojagi art (multipurpose square cloth).
New York Design Week was a whirlwind of design adventure, one highlight was the neon post-modern utopia of Sight Unseen OFFSITE! Monica Khemsurov and Jill Singer of the website Sight Unseen also co-founded this show in conjunction with NYCxDesign and ICFF. It enchantingly combined the works of independent design studios alongside those from established, forward-thinking brands, creating a small but well curated venue for industry professionals and design enthusiasts.
