ABOUT THE LABEL
autoctona was launched in 2011.
annually we release a series of objects and collaborative projects with fellow creatives and businesses alike.
the label combines a timeless aesthetic and innovative concepts with a traditional approach to manufacturing and product integrity.
we conceive wearable objects that search for a deeper relationship between the individual and the piece, both emotionally and functionally.
our focus is on a contemporary reinterpretation of the amulet and in transcending conventional boundaries that define clothing, jewelry and accessories.
