An experimental approach

  • • Edita sources her leather locally
  • • She opened her workshop in Galicia in 2012
  • • Her imprint is evident in each of her pieces

The artisan heritage inherited from her family and her academic training in Fine Arts have guided Edita Rodríguez Oca's career. Under the name Jatafarta, she creates handcrafted leather objects by applying traditional techniques, but always incorporating elements linked to sculpture and to design. Her brand's collection includes a wide variety of accessories such as wallets and bags, as well as homeware pieces such as mirrors, lamps, and drink coasters. Edita creates pieces made with raw materials in their most natural state, as well as objects where the material is in its most sophisticated version. She values slow work, in contrast to the unbridled pace of production of large corporations and respects small and responsible consumption.
