Lady Ardour welcomes you to the Bari Zaki Studio

I have been a bookbinder since 1988. I make every book, box and card personally, using the finest materials from Europe and Japan. I am known for my attention to detail, and my creativity is continually renewed by working with exquisite papers and fabrics.

Additionally, I’ve developed an evolving range of stationery pleasures, from pencils and butterfly clips covered in Japanese papers to one-of-a-kind journals and desk accessories.

Most recently, my love of color, pattern and texture has found a new medium for expression. I have inherited my mom’s collection of extraordinary beads from around the world, as well as her affinity for assembling them into bracelets. I love the transformational aspect of this process, taking individual beads and arranging them in a way that resonates for the wearer.
