The inspiration behind Morija’s work derives from the exploration of natural silk fibres in their raw form. Her work focuses on the use of wild silks and hand dyeing processes to create unique textural pieces. Morija creates cloth enriched with hand crafted details and complexity. The slow process of hand weaving enables her to explore fibre within the boundary of warp and weft. Morija begins weaving with a network of calculated threads and then works organically throughout the piece adding luxury and depth to the textile.
Morija has a diploma in both Fashion Design and Textile Art. She has been working in the industry for over 10 years and has exhibited her fashions and textiles on International stages. Currently Morija works from her studio in Ontario, Canada. She designs and creates silk accessories under her own company, Morija Designs, and also sews for other high end garment designers and artists across Canada in the textile industry. More recently her work has focused on the natural process of creating cloth and the “slow fashion” movement. The slow, methodical creation and the process of weaving and dyeing itself is what inspires these luxurious textiles.
