I Am The Ocean on the occasion of world ocean days presents “The Panthalassa”

On World Ocean Day, I AM THE OCEAN, The Art Luxury House that aims to create conscious change and redefine the perception of the interaction between humanity and nature, continues its mission with the launch of its third creation, THE PANTHALASSA, a tribute to the majestic and supreme ocean that surrounds the continents and unites humanity. In ancient times Panthalassa was the supreme ocean that surrounded the supercontinent known as Pangaea. Today Panthalassa, still the supreme ocean, surrounds the continents separated from each other-what we call Super Humanity. Despite the different names we have given to the oceans separating them with our geographical boundaries, our cultural differences, and our different lifestyles, we continue to be connected by the ocean and are at one with the world with our oneness through the timeless bond represented by the ocean. The dichotomy of our individuality and mutual interconnectedness is celebrated and reflected without temporal boundaries by the ocean. Our signature woven pattern THE PANTHALASSA itself declaims the dichotomy between individuality and being at one with the world. THE PANTHALASSA is distinguished by its distinctive, exclusive, and inimitable I AM THE OCEAN signature "weave" that interprets the very essence of THE IATO SPHERE concept, which is to offer endless possibilities for customization and self-expression through interchangeable components such as shoulder straps, removable charms (sold separately) and multifunctional inner bags. I AM THE OCEAN creations are made in Italy and handcrafted by master artisans. Each creation is composed of an average of more than 110 elements and as many as 20 "handmade" craftsmanship techniques are required to make them. Hardware components are made following the disciplines of the best Italian goldsmithing arts and certified Responsible Jewelry Council (RJC) because sustainability and luxury are two sides of the same coin. THE IATO SPHERE offers unlimited ways…
