BRIKA offers a curated assortment of beautiful and unique crafted products from the most talented, authentic artisans and makers. At BRIKA, we believe it is about more than just the products we sell. We tell the stories of the talented and inspiring artisans and makers we partner with. Our vision is to inspire individuals everywhere to discover the beauty of a “well-crafted life” through these stories.
BRIKA comes from the Spanish word “Fabrica,” which means “Factory.” We love the irony of this word as none of the products that will be sold on our site will ever be generic or mass made!
Who is BRIKA?
BRIKA was started by Kena Paranjape and Jennifer Lee Koss. They met through Kena’s blog, which led to a conversation over coffee, and evolved into a friendship built on admiration, inspiration and the power of following your passions. It was over many such coffee dates that BRIKA was created.
Jennifer Lee Koss is a Harvard MBA graduate, former management consultant and cellist and our resident Big Thinker. Jen believes all things are possible.
Kena Paranjape is a University of Toronto MBA graduate, former retail buyer and blogger and BRIKA’s eternal optimist. Kena believes that small things make up a beautiful life.
