Tell us about how and when NOIRANCA started? Founded in 2021, NOIRANCA endeavors to forge a direct line with women on the grounds of women empowerment, diversity, and equality. Designing vegan leather handbags of unique silhouettes, our collection, elevated by traditional craftsmanship, is made for women who desire different. Whereas, our team designs with an eco-vision, making sure we are on the right path to creating a cruelty-free planet. At NOIRANCA, we believe fashion can indeed be a force for good.
Where do you draw your inspiration from? In creating our first designs, we were deeply inspired by the powerful black-and-white portraits by the legendary photographer, Robert Mapplethorpe, who extracts the originality and beauty of women. Bringing on his artistic legacy, the inspiration of each bag stems from women who inspired many — the likes of Alice Neel and Grace Jones — alongside the desire to inspire more.
What is the New Femininity? New Femininity is the embodiment of the ineffable beauty that is untranslatable. Rather than defining femininity, we let it speaks for itself. The essence of New Femininity is all about inclusivity, encompassing a spectrum of all skin tones, ages body types and culture.
What cause is particularly important for you? NOIRANCA comes with a philanthropic promise in supporting the female community. Partnering with i=Change®, $1 from every order is donated to a charity of your choice — Her Future Coalition, Women's Community Shelter and National Breast Cancer Foundation — for NOIRANCA is where a strong female bond is built upon. Sustainability is of paramount importance in our book, and we focus on every step that could make our earth cleaner. Crafting our handbags with PETA-Approved Vegan Leather, there is nary an animal-deprived material used. We are doing our best in contributing to our dear planet.
