FAQ

About TIKA


TIKA is short for a Georgian name TINATINI. As a child, I personalised my own clothes and took classes in painting, macrame weaving, knitting and sewing. Initial studies in BA were followed by a brief career at the UNHQ in NY while attending evening classes for Master's Degree in Economics. A handcrafted gift to a colleague led to a job offer for a renowned Interior Designer, Mona Hajj in Baltimore, MD. But my eyes were set on Europe, rich in cultural heritage and history. Enentually, I've quit school and my job at the UN and moved to Florence, Italy, to attend Fashion Design Programme at Polimoda/FIT campus there. Later, I took an opportunity to do an internship in Costume Design at the National Theatre of Catalunya in Barcelona and worked for four years in this field. This experience had a major influence in shaping my ability to create from a wide range of materials and is still present in my work. Yet, before I would dedicate myself to purely creative expression, I've spent almost a decade working in Fashion Industry as a Merchandiser, International Buyer and Production Manager. First collection of handbags by Tika was aquired in 2001 by ARTIUM, Museum of Modern Art in Vitoria, Basque Country, Spain. Personally, I find myself effortlessly inspired by nature, art and personal qualities of my clients. Today, I work from an intimate atelier in Barcelona together with other artisans. From here, we offer tailored individually key accessories for clients and niche brands.
