Simplify Beauty and Life
My name is Natascha. When my daughter Elise was born, I was a busy working mother; I was breastfeeding and couldn’t find a satisfying way to tie my hair quickly and beautifully. I was having a hard time trying to be a good mom while staying elegant as a woman at the same time.
That was when I remembered a gift my mother, Nadine, bought me on a market in Florence. When I was 15 years old, she offered me a pretty, easy to attach, silver jewel to fasten my hair in a second.
That is how Elna was born, to simplify women’s lives.
Elise & Nadine… E L N A
In a process over several years, we researched the history, materials and physical properties of hair accessories, as well as production techniques and contemporary needs. We developed a minimalist, elegant and easy to use design. A brooch with a stem attached to it. We devised prototypes and customized tools engineered specifically for E L N A.
The process is executed by our jewelers in Portugal well known for there expertise in precious metals, enabling us to control the quality at any stage. All clips are available in either silver-tone or plated gold.
Along the way, the technical innovation allowed us to improve on both, functionality and style.
