Empowering Change, One Bag at a Time

NICA was founded in 2019 by the creative sister duo Nika and Carolina.

The idea was to move away from fast fashion, towards the creation of unique handbags by using only left-over fabrics. Each bag is intended to be collected thoughtfully and treasured over seasons and years to come.

OUR STORY

OUR SUSTAINABLE APPROACH

By utilizing leftover fabrics, we reduce waste and minimize the environmental footprint of the interior designindustry.

We believe in the power of sustainability to shape a better future.

OUR MISSION

At NicasConcept, our love extends beyond fashion; it's a commitment to our planet Earth.

With a deep-rooted commitment to environmental stewardship and social responsibility, we're pioneering eco-friendly practices, ethical sourcing, and a transparent supply chain.

We believe that fashion should not come at the expense of our planet or its inhabitants. That's why we're dedicated to reimagining the fashion industry and reshaping the way brands operate.

BECAUSE WASTE IS NOT WASTE UNTIL WE WASTE IT.
