The choker is inspired by German writer Kathrine Switzer.
She was the first woman to run a marathon with a dorsal, a race that was exclusively for male athletes, when in the 1967 Boston Marathon she managed, registering as KV Switzer, to start from the finish line with the dorsal 261 and cross the finish line after 4 hours and 20 minutes. In the course of the race, one of the commissaires, Jock Semple, who was co-director of the race, detecting that Kathrine Switzer was indeed a woman, tried to stop her, went out behind her and shouted: "Get out of my race and give me back my dorsal! But the collaboration of her boyfriend and some runners, who escorted her to the finish line, prevented the athlete from being withdrawn from the competition.
At Trart we only work with high quality materials. The jewelery pieces are made of polymer clay that we obtain to través from a totally handmade process. Our chokers are water and wear resistant. As it is a traditional process, the jewels can vary in size as they are made by hand one by one. We are an original brand from Barcelona, we like the proximity and the love for athentic things.
The variety of shapes and textures are obtained by embedding clays of different colors, using complex techniques with spectacular results. The diversity of colors is obtained by mixing the primary colors, and in no case paint or other products other than clay are used.
All our designs are original and as they are handcrafted they will always be unique, since it is unlikely to make two exact ones.
