The Bagra Collection features pillows made with well-preserved vintage Bulgarian fabric called 'kovior'. Kovior pieces are easily recognized as they marry color and pattern in unique standout combinations. This is why we called this collection ‘Bagra’ (old Bulgarian for color).
Kovior pieces are embroidered tapestries. Embroidery used to have great symbolic value in Bulgaria and was believed to protect from evil spirits. Kovior tapestries was popularly made and used in 19th and 20th century Bulgaria. However, tragically, ‘kovior’ has fallen out of vogue and is not produced anymore, so each of our kovior pieces is rare, making each pillow truly one-of-a-kind.
