ABOUT CSB SCHOOL OF DESIGN
Bokja partnered with Creative Space Beirut – School of Design (CSB-SD), a tuition-free school for fashion design in the city. By offering five intensive workshop in embroidery, the students were allowed the opportunity to learn first-hand the complexities of a world-class craft studio.
Our studio crafts unique furniture and wearables using embroidery and textile. With a diverse team of talented artisans, we seek to preserve a local craft tradition and redefine it in a contemporary voice.
Abu Yusif, our deeply knowledgeable head embroiderer, spent hours with the students teaching them how to navigate the impressive, more than 150-year-old, embroidery machine and introducing them to its various intricate possibilities and embroidery techniques.
The students are now translating what they’ve learned onto their designs at school using our very own machine, incorporating these new techniques into their final collections!
