Placed in the heart of Gracia neighborhood in Barcelona, known by its town vibes, Atelier Batac has a quiet space to create and welcome sharing knowledge and knowhow as the way to keep alive traditional leatherworking techniques. I was a leathercraft student in Colombia who was amazed every time I completed whatever small leather piece and realizing I could make it by my own. That is a strong feeling I never forget and I would like to be able to evoke in others.
