We are committed to sustainable and environmentally friendly fashion throughout the creative process.
Having worked for some of the biggest Parisian luxury houses (Dior, Chloé, Louis Vuitton and Givenchy, among others), we met in a luxury shoe factory in Venice three years ago.
Together, we have chosen to create Nomasei as a commitment to return to a timeless and honest luxury made of respect, sharing, ethical commitments and transparency. The trajectory of strong, free and unsubmissive women and dance as a gesture of freedom are our inspirations.
An encounter with a luxury shoe factory in Montopoli, a village in Tuscany, gives shape to Nomasei. This family business, whose values they share, becomes the essential partner of the project. Nomasei's dominant colours are a tribute to this collaboration: Montopoli red, the colour of terracotta, the typical terracotta of the Tuscan hills and Siena, the yellowed white of the Pompeian marbles.
"The hand is action: it takes, it creates,
and sometimes it looks like it thinks."(Henri Focillon)
Nomasei shoes are shoes with studied shapes, high quality materials, processes that respect the environment and human beings, the result of an ethical commitment to radical transparency.
Nomasei are hands: "Noma" - from the Italian "Mano", the hand, with a slang twist to muddy the waters - "Sei" - six in Italian, because each creation is the fruit of collaboration between several hands and several skills, united around an idea that becomes a creation.
Each piece has its own story: a story made of time, quality and design, where each step of the creation bears the imprint of the hand that made it.
Contrary to the frenetic pace of today's fashion, Nomasei is a laboratory and a space of freedom and creation open to all, whose form evolves with the inspirations and discoveries of all those who contribute to it: a project combining timeless values and fashion sensitivity, a footwear brand that makes sharing and transparency the keystones of a new idea of luxury.
