Born in 2000 Beirut-based design firm Bokja creates dreamy embroderies with a distinct aesthetic that seeks to surprise, layering history and memories. Founded by Huda Baroudi and Maria Hibri, the brand shares a passion for furniture and fabrics, with one common denominator: craftsmanship. Everything is made by hand with meticulous attention and love for detail. Combining artisans, carpenters, designers, there are at least fourteen hands behind every design piece. Recently Bokja has presented “Homesick”, an installation at the Beirut Design Week 2017 which defines ‘home’ more as a sentiment that follows engagement with an object, place or situation, rather than a concept of mere space.
