Bokja is the skin, a surface, the external expression, dealing primarily with textiles to create tactile and personable objects. Its signature is a visually chaotic assembly of fabric pieces stitched together to form a unified message. Bokja brings together poetic fragments of time and place and situates them in unusual arrangements; a rich and unexpected visual language is created.
Textile making and embellishment has been a significant part of Middle Eastern craft for several millenia. Bokja unearths this age-old tradition, redefining it in a contemporary voice. Bokja’s textile laboratory is composed of a solid network of specialized artisans, serving as a preserver of textile practices and a gatherer of stories.
Wild yellow nature fractures and intersects a flat plane of checkered blue, reminding us of a few of our favorite things like bright yellow sunflowers and checkered blue picnics. With six different faces, the Bokja cube ottoman resembles a die; like a roll of a die, you never know what to expect.
