Designer interview

From Japanese shibori scarves to English wax seal bracelets, from bags made with Argentine leather to Indian wedding jewelry, we scour the world to find unique jewelry and accessories with inspiring stories. Designers from across the globe come together on Boticca, and we have the pleasure of bringing their stories to you. We speak to them to learn all about what inspires them, their likes and dislikes, their personal style and how they found the courage to launch their own lines. From the ocean to wild animals to family dinners, our designers find inspiration everywhere they turn. Every piece is a part of a designer’s original narrative and each one is sure to capture your imagination. Discover the unique stories that inspire every collection, and learn how you can connect with your favorite designers.
