Two sisters: one mission
NICA was founded in 2019 by the creative sister duo Nika and Carolina. The name NICA originated by merging the first two letters of both their names.
The idea was to move away from fast fashion, creating unique handbags by using old fabrics. Each bag is intended to be collected thoughtfully and treasured over seasons and years to come.
NICA collaborates side by side with European interior designers, who are providing premium leftover fabrics. The two sisters strongly believe that old textiles have character and always a story to tell.
Inspired by their ever-stylish mother, the duo creates unique handbags with thought-through details made with leftover interior design fabrics. Designed in Berlin, all bags are hand made in Istanbul in a fair production process. All their packaging is made from recycled paper.
This mission at heart runs very deep for the sisters. Their mother got diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia at only 45 years old. She was their main inspiration and the reason why they created NICASCONCEPT.
