Occvlta is a two-people endeavour whose main aim has been focused on crafting high-quality herbal products and artefacts for the alchemist, the poisoner, the apothecary, and the practitioner of Witchcraft since 2013.
Its founding members and owners, Hector and Julia, reside in the Pyrenees of Catalonia and the focus of their work revolves around the awakening and remembrance of forgotten Witch and Plant lore from the mountain territories, something they accomplish with their creations but also through working with museums, cultural entities, workshops, and teaching.
