About the Collection
Encantada… ("delighted to meet you")
Warmth, enchantment, strength: İTÄ’s first collection exudes the ancient and abiding culture, spirit, and energy of Puerto Rico.
Inspired by the mythic stories and symbols of the island’s Taíno and natural heritage, our Encantada collection reverberates with pride and longing for a place we call home.
The Encantada collection features the endearing coquí, the potent mother goddess Atabey, enigmatic Taíno and Igneri petroglyphs and other symbolic echoes of Puerto Rico’s rich past with subtle hints of İTÄ’s wandering spirit—wearable memories that embrace the joy and the longing that are the birthright of every traveler.
A joyous blending of cultures
Inesita Capó, from Puerto Rico and Äfet Burcu Salargil from Turkey, together İTÄ, met as members of distinct diasporas. Their abiding friendship is built on openness and a love of cultural exchange, values that give İTÄ its unique and inclusive appeal. As the brand grows, İTÄ plans to introduce new lines inspired by the heritage of Turkey and other countries Äfet and Inés have explored.
Inés and Äfet hope that everyone, no matter where they are from, will discover a spirit in their designs that speaks to the heart: A sweet longing for the places you were destined to visit and live, and the people you were destined to meet and love.
