2018 SS Collection Concept:

“Nature is the main inspiration behind the new 2018 SS collection. The parts of a plant and the growing stages of plants (example: seed, bud, and blooming) were the origins of this collection’s designs. Black Barc’s  focus has always been on nature and black
smithing (handmade) but this collection takes an even deeper look at these concepts and expresses them in form, more than in the past. By making each piece by hand, alloying the material and shaping them with care, each piece is different and special, like nature …”
