Black Sheep

In 2008 Katherine Batliner's encounter with the Armenian artisan Mihitar was the missing piece in achieving the desired perfection in handmade leather crafts. The last successor of the 150-year-old dynasty of master craftsmen passionately put his heritage in her hands. This rare experience combined with sophisticated and modern, yet timeless design led her to finally found her label BATLINER in 2011.
Born in 1980, with an early affinity for creating objects of use, Batliner studied Industrial Design in Switzerland. Longer stays in London, Paris and Istanbul further shaped her understanding of design and art. Today she lives in Vienna.
