Mini “Atabex” Bazaar Bracelets
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 Atabex, enigmatic Taíno 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.
Feel like you've taken a little bit of the Caribbean from the İstanbul Grand Bazaar!
Our cutout Atabex pieces depict the omnipotent Taíno goddess in her various manifestations. She is a kind mother who breeds life into earth and nature. She is a great summoner of winds and tides, as well as an arbiter of vast waters.
Turkish design adds another element of protection to this powerfurl and multi-versed deity. A nazar boncuk—the famed Turkish “evil eye”—sits in her lap, in the shelter of her arms, protecting her womb…the chamber of life.
