BALAKATA stems from the combination of design with the recovery of ancient techniques. It is a return to handmade, quality products that last a lifetime. Enjoy the pure materials, textures and imperfections of handwork, which enhance the beauty of each piece. Each culture is a source of inspiration based on the respect for the environment and the people involved in every part of the process. The luxury of craft. BALAKATA is the name given to a plant that grows in India, among other countries. A name that takes us to nature and a country that saw the birth of our project ... and last but not least, to pronounce it repeatedly reminds us of the noise of the looms working, in which many of our fabrics are made.
We create beautifully handmade home and lifestyle products. We work with artisans throught the world combining timeless design with traditional skills and natural materials. We have the luck to work with craftsmen that share his talent, enthusiasm and patience with us, helping to create beautiful and imperfect products. We are a family team. The relationship between an artisan and a beautiful handmade piece creates a story, which makes each product not a mass market item, but an individually crafted piece. The traditional skills used by our suppliers have been handed down from generation to generation. We value this age-old knowledge and hope to help keep it alive. We love the character in each item, the handmade nature of our products is what we believe sets us apart. We want to protect these skills.
