Flora \ Fauna

Flora and Fauna is an ongoing project by Bokja exploring the animal and plant kingdoms as a source of inspiration for creating contemporary handcrafted images and motifs embroidered in fine threads. Most of these embroidered pieces become the face of a unique cushions, bringing an element of the natural landscape into domestic spaces, the home. In the Middle East, the use of flora and fauna in textile is a practice which dates back over a millennium, many times making direct references to what paradise would be like; a lush and fruitful space.
