Ibiza style: Katta Gassi at The Treasure Chest
Within The Treasure Chest at Experimental Beach Ibiza – the luxe clothing boutique housed inside the restaurant area – are a range of uniqu and special pieces you won’t find anywhere else. Stepping away from importing the standard Balinese inspired tunics and dresses seen all over the island, The Treasure Chest curators prefer to showcase collections by lesser known, higher quality local designers that make you stand out from the crowd in a stylish and edgy way.
Cue Katta Gassi, a 100-percent local to Ibiza stunning line of specially made organic cotton clothing by a creative and talented mother-daughter duo. The mother, a professional and highly experienced seamstress began sewing clothes in their current workshop in the upper part of Dalt Vila some 45 years ago. The daughter learned the trade 20 years ago and now together they have a full-service shop where everything from design and cutting to washing to sewing is completed by them personally.
The clothing line is so underground that, in fact, the name ‘Katta Gassi’ was only born when The Treasure Chest decided to exclusively carry the duo’s creations. Before that, the line was nameless. Katta refers to the daughter’s nickname and Gassi is to honour her late father, being the name of the family’s house they grew up in.
The 100-percent handmade cotton line features designs for men, women and children and is luxuriously soft, quality made and perfectly fitting. The designs are the essence of island bohemian chic; all-white long skirts, flowing dresses and elegant kaftans that are perfect against sun-kissed skin. The perfect ‘souvenir’ of your summer holiday experience in Ibiza.
