Deborah van der Leijgraaf has been working as an illustrator to children's books, cards and fabrics for years now. She graduated from the Willem de Kooning academie. Back then she couldn't have thought she'd be succeful worldwide. She runs a store and studio in Den Hoorn together with her husband Marc. They make the best possible available choices for the environment while producing and packaging the BORA products. BORA products have a distinctive vintage feel. The colours also contribute to the unmistakable BORA-style.
