Paris-based fashion brand Batucada makes this silicone-like jewelry from 100% recycled materials. This idea was inspired by Brazilian resort culture, where wearing accessories to the beach is the norm. But wearing regular jewelry around the sand and sea isn’t very practical.
Founder Loick Leblond came up with these detailed, beach-friendly bracelets—handcrafted, feather-light, and easy to clean with soapy water. The incredible patterns are the work of Batucada’s designers, who have worked with some of Europe’s most iconic fashion houses. The designs are drawn from nature, movement, and culture—you can see the hint of tropical flowers or water droplets. The flexible material sits seamlessly against the skin, giving the impression of delicate inkwork.
