A baeja excavated from the tomb of the Papyeong Yun family clan (1735-1754), Chungcheongnamdo Province was used as a prototype of this piece. Patterned silk was used for both the outer and lining shells but in different colors for this reversible baeja. The collar is detailed with jogakbo (traditional Korean patchwork), and knot buttons are made of the same fabrics used for the outer and lining shells. Straps 12cm wide and 7cm long are attached under the armpits to fix the open sides.
