Meet the Author


Patricia Lee learned about the use of bojagi, or wrapping scarves, while on a visit to Korea. Years later, Patricia learned that Americans throw away four million tons of wrapping paper and shopping bags each Christmas. Convinced it was time to act and remembering bojagi, she started the Bobo Wrapping Scarf Company.

The silk scarves are absolutely gorgeous. You can add accessories like hair ties, or ribbon, or you can leave them plain, they are absolutely gorgeous. The ones with 2 sides provide a contrast in color that is very pretty to look at. This is an environment friendly way to give a gift. Gift wrapping paper is so wasteful, you wrap a gift and the recipient rips it to open the gift, then it goes in the trash. What a waste! With fabric, you untie, iron, and you can wrap another gift with it. You can pass it on to family members and friends and see how it comes back to you again and again. What a wonderful way to save the world. One scarf at a time. I love the book and would recommend it to everyone.
