The story of the brand

After several experiences in some very renowned fashion companies, Cynthia Norendi decided to launch her eponymous leather bag brand on July 2020.

The idea of a brand started sprouting back in 2015 when she was graduating the first year of her Master’s degree after presenting a brand creation project in front of a jury of professionals.

She chose to focus on leather goods with the main idea of offering a collection of bags with strong cultural roots.


Her ethnic background from Guadeloupe (West Indies) gave her inspiration for the creative process : the colors, the style and even the naming of the items.

Her special touch? The feathers: a sensual and festive symbol of the creole culture represented in carnivals that have a very special place in the creative process.  

Her universe then defined, once graduated she began the design of her creative project while perfecting her quality and product skills. After 4 years of hard work, the brand is finally born to the delight of its creator.
