The RIIJA brand’s exclusive collections are characterised by high quality materials, laconic design and functionality. They precisely mirror the brand concept and principles according to which RIIJA tailors the rest of its store offering in collaboration with the best craftsmen and designers.
The collection is made of soft linen fabric whose silky touch you yearn to feel again and again. It transpires that linen can also be as fine as silk. The SILKY collection offers freestyle clothing, bed linen and towels. There’s no need to iron it and it won’t shrink after washing.
You will never tire of observing the tricks played by light and shadows on a ROUGH collection tablecloth. The ROUGH material is not merely soft and pleasant, it is also durable. It is a table textile that will give your home a natural and elegant mood, combining grey tones with brighter details.
Linen fabric handwoven on looms by skilled Latvian craftsmen, giving each fibre its own particular value. Table cloths you’d like to wrap up in, towels you’d like tie around your neck, and scarves, which can serve as curtains – these are true works of art.
This collection of interior items and bags is made from stiffened, impregnated linen fabric. Lightweight shopping bags with leather handles that add a touch of elegance to everyday life in the city. The FROZEN collection includes his and hers dusters made from this very same material.
The appeal of these glasses made in a glazier’s workshop lies in their imperfections. Their unevenness and slight distortions give these vessels character and uniqueness. Having been touched by the master’s hand and creative spirit, each glass is truly inimitable.

Thick and durable carpets are made by hand in the Northern weaving technic of tapestry and long fringes. Natural materials – jute and woolen yarn – dyed in the shades that refine also other RIIJA collections in a harmonic way.
