Subo (수보) is embroidered pojagi cloth. Subo was used in Korea, among others, for wrapping gifts for newly engaged couples. The name derives from su for embroidery, and bo for pojaki/bojaki, or even bo. The cloth was often made from a silk or cotton ground material.

Trees is a popular design, sometimes very simple, but at times very detailed, but other designs are also often found. The embroidery, once finished, was lined and sometimed padded.
