Across the Arab world, a bokja is the term for an embellished textile wrapping used to carry personal belongings. Fittingly, Bokja is also the name of Beirut based surface fabrication studio, founded by Hoda Baroudi and Maria Hibri, in 2000. Their approach has an international following — pieces of previously used fabric, each with its own history, find themselves transformed from one life to the next by the unexpected, brilliant juxtapositions of colour, pattern, texture and surface. Each piece, be it furniture, clothing or scarf, is a one-off and comes with its own passport, listing its name, 'date of birth' and description — the start of its new journey. We have one silk-velvet Bokja scarf to give away, worth $650.
Enter to win, competition closes 15th April 2021.
