SoWa Vendor Spotlight: Faburiq

Faburiq is made for the Modern Man. Crafted from and inspired by Heritage Japanese fabrics, Faburiq is based in Boston and Made in the USA.

Born in Malaysia, schooled in the United Kingdom, and now an improper Bostonian, founder Aruña designs each one-of-a-kind piece, and all hand-finished in the United States. Having been educated in England and Spain, and traveled extensively throughout Asia, Aruña has always been drawn to each culture’s traditional textiles, tailoring and fashion. On a trip to Tokyo, Japan, Aruña visited many local fabric shops, and saw an opportunity to incorporate these traditional fabrics into contemporary men's attire.

Faburiq wants to highlight the unique work of the skilled textile designer that created the fabric, with the lost art of hand-sewn tailored finishes, to preserve these traditions in a contemporary men’s accessory. The end product is a result of reacquainting an Eastern fabric with a New England industry. 

Faburiq is a leap of faith. As Aruña constantly seeks opportunities to incorporate customs and traditions from her own roots into the modern western and international society in which she lives, Faburiq is the consequence of juxtaposition – timeworn fabrics and classical tailoring; rejuvenated, and living harmoniously as the modern man’s fashion accessory.

Faburiq has also recently produced a small line of women’s scarves, perfect for Mother’s Day!
