The luxury of silk, the special attention to details and low serial design are the main values of Umutka, a brand that recently presented its new line of handbags and shirts in an after work at the Barcelonan Hotel Casa Grácia (Passeig de Gràcia, 116).
Created two years ago, Umutka is meant to surprise with its design, which stands out for its quality and vibrant colours that perfectly represent the spirit of Barcelona. Even though silk is its main resource, the real stars of the collection are its prints: colourful and original, they are produced in limited amount guaranteeing the exclusivity of the garments. “The prints are the result of a creative quest, motivating to get dressed with feelings and eclectic designs”, the brand explains.
We were able to meet the new collection first-hand at the event they presented on June 27th, where friends and influencers gathered at one of the chicest hotels in Barcelona. There, among glasses of cava and chit chat, the shirts and accessories were exhibited next to sketches that showed the creative process of the design team.
Umutka’s costumers are sensitive people, driven by their love for art and design, and this for sure translates to the designs they make. These are pieces made to be different, ideal for those looking for originality and sustainability, as everything is produced locally in a very honest artisanal process.
Always looking to inspire and wakening feelings, Umutka definitely is a brand to keep an eye on. They have sold their products in Formentera and they are looking to sell in Ibiza in a very near future, but for now you can find their exclusive products at Mit K (Carrer de Verdi, 52).
