From commentary on the dire state of the environment to celebrating freedom of expression, Bokja leaves nothing unsaid. The studio’s new pillow collection, “Solastalgia,” captures our yearning to exist in harmony with nature, making its first international debut at Maison et Objet just last month. Handcrafted in Lebanon by skilled craftsmen and women, the brand uses artisanal embroidery to stitch together poetic narratives across a variety of surfaces and objects that range from furniture to home goods. Threads overlap, build and fray to create innovative, textured surfaces- a new direction for embroidery in today’s digital world. Each pillow arrives with a small, embroidered ‘hangtext’ sharing their story.
