About Heimat atlantica

Heimat Atlantica was founded in 2016 in Paris by Montserrat Álvarez. The brand’s mission is to create handbags that preserve and transform the traditional crafts of women living along the Atlantic coast of northern Spain and Portugal, offering a unique blend of cultural heritage and modern design.

The brand's first project, the HEIMAT TALISMAN limited edition handbags, set the tone for its future designs. These handbags are a handcrafted collage of traditional hand-woven reed basketry, leather, and porcelain fetishes from Sargadelos, each piece unique and rich in cultural significance.

The brand's philosophy centers on creating handbags that are both handmade and based on the legacy of traditional crafts, distancing itself from fleeting trends. Heimat Atlantica is dedicated to inventing new designs while preserving what is already good and beautiful in the world.

Heimat Atlantica's styles transform and preserve specific know-hows from the Atlantic Coast. Each bag is a collage of exceptional elements, including traditional Portuguese woven reed baskets and ceramic charms from Sargadelos, signifying a blend of tradition and modernity.

In terms of collaborations and partnerships, Heimat Atlantica has gained recognition from notable figures in the design world and has worked with well-known stockists and brands. The brand's collaboration with Japanese label Comme des Garcons highlights its international appeal and design versatility.

Sustainability is at the heart of Heimat Atlantica's production. The brand works closely with artisans, employing traditional techniques and sustainable materials, emphasizing the preservation of local crafts and environmental responsibility.
