Designers Huda Baroudi and Maria Hibri cofounded Bokja a design and craft studio in Beirut, Lebanon in 2000. They revive regional textile practices by redefining them in a contemporary voice, specialising in a range of fields including clothing, furniture, and accessories. With a solid network of specialized artisans, Bokja serves as a curator of textile techniques and a gatherer of personal stories.

This collection commemorates the Lebanese Revolution by assembling moments and icons, depicting them on textile. The silk pieces are beautifully hand-made by a team of exceptionally talented craftsmen and women. The robes, dresses, and shirts are all designed for a fluid silhouette, enriched by voluminous pleats. These items are to be worn by the bold and the committed, in winter or in summer, disregarding norms of gender and trend.

Mint presents New Wave a minimalist furniture collection created by Netherlands-based designer Lukas Cober. Through a conversation of raw materiality and distinctive shapes, the collection illustrates the designer’s tie to the sea and the act of gliding on the oceans force.  For the collection, the woven glass-fibre fabric is chosen for its pure aesthetics. As the standard material on the craft of building surfboards, boats and in aerospace the high-tech material is used in an altered format to create the collection. The pieces are built up in thickness by hand-layering the glass fibre layer by layer into desired shapes. In an interplay of translucence and light, the smooth shapes reveal themselves drawn as silhouettes against the surface.

Designed in London and made in Mongolia, Oyuna specialises in womenswear, unisex clothing and homeware, in its signature architectural silhouettes and bright hues. Oyuna was founded by Mongolian-born designer Oyuna Tserendorj, with the aim to design thoughtfully, using the luxurious natural material – Mongolian cashmere. The softness of each piece is designed to empower the wearer, with an underlying principle that we should have few, but precious objects in our lives, that maintain relevance and quality over time. Preservation of Mongolian land and its nomadic culture is crucial for Oyuna, who have worked with the same Mongolian weavers since the brand was born, providing rewarding relationships and transparency from fibre to final stitch.
