This first image on today’s post may be a bit hard to understand as it must appear at first glance to be nothing more than contrasting color and texture.
This post revisits an earlier post where I showed a large mat sewn from twelve sakabukuro. I was scrolling through some of my old photos and I found these images of a black, Korean pojagi set against the backdrop of the mat of sakabukuro and I liked the way the color and texture played against one another—and I also thought it would be an interesting study in similarity and contrast: I’m sure you will see what I mean.
Because these images show some details of the black pojagi that has appeared in the margins of photos in previous posts, I thought they would be informative toward describing a bit more about the pojagi–and I hope you enjoy looking.
