Entry Description: Le Jacky; A vintage volume with contemporary design for a strong impact. This vanity case could have belonged to Lady Jackie Kennedy once. But it actually thanks its name to the famous Belgian pilot Jacky Ickx. This gentleman started his career in motor sports as a motorcyclist, but already very quickly he won many several prizes as a Formula 1 pilot, but also as a GP pilot, endurance pilot, To make everything even more comfortable, we integrated LED technology. This discreet system enlightens the most precious accessories in your handbag and saves you a lot of time. These handbags, and all other NIYONA bags, are designed and made in Belgium, in our workshop in Brussels and based on a 100% artisanal know-how.

About the Designer/Company
Niyona was created by Nina Bodenhorst. While studying industrial design at ENSAV LaCambre she did an internship of 6 months at Delvaux where she learned to design fine leather goods. Afterwards she started working at another house in Belgian leather, Nathan-Baume as a designer-stylist where she designed the collections for 7 seasons. In parallel she takes evening classes to learn the craftsmanship of handmade leather bags. This allows her to ensure the quality and to work close with the artisans of the Niyona production.
