Chogappo which is made of plain weave silk fragments. All hand sewn with red silk threads. "Pojagi" is a general name for wrapping cloth and "chogappo" is one kind of pojagi which is patchwork with silk as well as asa ( reference source: "Korean Embroidery and Wrapping Cloths from the Choson Dynasty" published by Japan Art & Culture Association in 1995 ). This one is called "sanpo", one kind of pojagi which is a cover for a tray or a table with food. Originally it has oiled paper in the back but this one doesn't. The cloth knob in the center works as a handle. In excellent condition. 20th century. 53cm x 54cm
