Batucada Designers are committed to creating unique and sophisticated pieces that enhance the essence of every individual who wears them. We collaborate with a team of talented stylists, designers & artists to create these timeless pieces that not only look beautiful but are friendly to the environment and offer an experience rather than a simple “accessory.”
The Batucada brand strives to expose the beauty that surrounds us and each designer draws inspiration from various cultures, nature and the experience of ordinary people who accomplish extraordinary things on a daily basis. Our design team includes:
Caroline Homery is a designer that is truly inspired by the living creatures that exist in nature. Her delicate and simplistic design is manifested in each piece that demonstrates her profound appreciation for nature’s gifts. Caroline is also associated with the creative design behind the marketing campaigns for some of the most recognizable international & global brands including Citroen.

Tanaka is a Designer, Architect and Art Director at J.J. His own background and love for interesting shapes and architectural design are the source of inspiration in his pieces. Tanaka uses merging shapes and lines to develop an exquisite and convincing pattern that sits delicately on the skin.

Following her studies in interior design (Barcelona), she completed an internship with a major architectural firm in Madrid.
