NO/AN is the hand­bag line con­ceived by Brus­sels-based Finnish design­er Anna Lehmusniemi. 

Launched in 2016, NO/AN act­ed as a reac­tion to over- con­sump­tion and the reck­less speed of the fash­ion sys­tem. Encour­ag­ing her clients to recon­nect with the beau­ty of long-last­ing and patient­ly craft­ed bags, the Finnish design­er imag­ined sup­ple and relaxed styles that could not be tied to any sea­son­al trends. 

The rel­e­vance of fair means of pro­duc­tion, time­less­ness in design and high-qual­i­ty skins is key with­in NO/AN, cou­pled with the integri­ty that the brand stands for. Each bag is made in Por­tu­gal by a spe­cial­ized and fam­i­ly- owned ate­lier, where the arti­sans get to sign the bags they pro­duced them­selves. The com­pa­ny was picked by the design­er for its exper­tise with nat­ur­al grain leather. 

Bear­ing min­i­mal­ists details and using a restrained col­or palette, NO/AN bags are pro­duced in small series, under­lin­ing their exclu­sive appeal. 

Avail­able world­wide, NO/AN has been fea­tured in Vogue Italia, Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue Run­way and Elle US, as well as Vogue Brazil, Vogue Aus­tralia and Marie Claire.
