Founded in 2000 by Huda Baroudi and Maria Hibri, Bokja was born from a
shared passion for furniture, textiles, art, and design. While Baroudi spent
much of her life collecting fabrics from the Silk Road, Hibri is a connoisseur of antique furniture. The two of them joined forces – merging their expertise and knowledge of traditional craftsmanship – and launched Bokja, reupholstering vintage furniture found in antique stores and flea markets with precious fabrics from the region.
