ATELIER BATAC is a Barcelona-based independent leather accessories brand that celebrates femininity. The former Spanish filmmaker Cristina Gómez launched her label focusing on creating a new sustainable look for women. A luxury signature product but an affordable price for those women who demand uniqueness and super cool bags. Cristina draws inspiration from women´s physicality, movement and shape, and the mediterranean seasonal energy transforming them into timeless bags instantly recognisable to the burgeoning community of an international audience.
If a AB bag was ...a song, it would be one from Nicolas Jaar. A film, it would be one from Eric Rohmer. An Art work, it would be one from Brancusi.
After falling in love with Colombian crafts while I was living in Bogota, I decided to challenge myself and launch Atelier Batac as a personal project. This way I could use my recently honed skills in leather-working and conjure them into the stories I want to tell. Thanks to my background in filmmaking, I have realized the value of an image which might seen superflous but reflected a change in our society. In the past century women have been fighting for our emancipation and carrying a bag, with our own cash, has become a symbol of our independence and our modern outlook.
Having that in mind, I wanted to offer a distinctive aesthetic for women because there is something intensely intimate about a woman´s handbag: in some ways, it is a microcosm of our life. This is the way that I embed my storytelling into my designs which I hope they are pieces that you will want to keep forever.
