||Nathnit is the brand of Natxa Gonzalez, designer and artisan. Nathnit’s pieces are designed and make of her study – workshop in the center of Valencia, Spain. She works principally with silver and natural materials, and she is constantly experimenting and investigating with new materials that could reduce her environmental impact and which are recyclable or recycled.
Nathnit’s designs have their origin in the passions of the mother of Natxa: art, history and travel around the globe. This passions made them go from museum to museum, exhibitions and a constant learning of history and art, and the meaning behind every image, sculpture and architectural marvel. All these educations, curiosity and passion marked them with ideas and images that take form in her designs and her meanings. Love for the decorative arts from the Arts & Craft, the Art nouveau and the Art Deco, the ergonomics, the proportions and a bit of love for the calculations, that’s what give form to the designs.
In Nathnit we work mainly with silver, brass and natural materials. All the materials we use came from local suppliers or from the European Union because we defend a way of working respectful with the environment and proximity. We keep constantly experimenting and researching with new materials that can reduce their environmental impact and which are recyclable or recycled. We also seek for packaging with less environmental impact and we try our best to arrive to the 0 waste. For us, the most important is the piece, so we avoid excess of packaging, to be as consistent as possible with an environmental and minimalist thinking.
