MORJA is a Slovenian based brand giving second chances to the forgotten, deadstock textiles, waste materials and preloved second hand clothes, by upcycling and reconstructing them into new items to save them from landfill.
The core of MORJA are colourful patchworks of everyday emotion in a pattern mix-match.
All items are handmade by me, Zala Hrastar in my little home workshop in a tiny slovenian village.
Morja represents patchwork of everything that I dream of, think of and believe in. Morja spreads kindness, good vibrations, positivity and encourages people to a more environmental conscious way of living with our Mother Earth. Constantly improving and growing.
I aim to produce guality items with lots of patience, love and with respect for the material that carries thousand stories and waits for a thousand more with you.
Curently interested in combining waste textiles, digital & paper collage illustrations, photography, poetry and melodies into new life for new opportunities and new smiles.
I am open for collaborations, so don't hesitate to contact me. ✿
