Bokja creates unique and colourful furniture, and its creations are now available in Hong Kong at colourliving

Each spring, colourful images bring a new turn. Flowers breed and blossom, pollens dissipate and travel – all of which is told in Bokja's handwoven furniture.

The term Bokja originates from a Turkish word referring to a piece of cloth used to wrap the dowry of a bride and is a collage of fabrics from different female members of the family. Each piece is unique and embeds the secrets and stories of Middle Eastern family traditions. It is both collective and exceptionally individual, with every piece being a new representation of the old.

Collected from all around the world, textiles and patterns are assembled by Bokja in Lebanon to create one-of-a-kind assemblages. Each newly assembled textile is then carefully transformed into a piece of furniture, marrying the tradition of Levantine textiles to a contemporary setting. Bokja’s mixed patterns also tell stories with a twist, such as an old fairy tale with a modern take or a Chinese legend mixed with western influences.

A selection of Bokja’s designs can now be found at the colourliving showroom in Hong Kong.
