The deeper meaning behind the brand
ILNI firstly started with the need for a beautiful handbag, ideally cruelty-free. Secondly, as a tribute to a woman whose life moto was “Respect everyone and everything”. That woman was the founder’s grandmother, Augustina. So naturally, our very first and iconic handbag has been named after her.
Furthermore, an ILNI handbag comes in a blue coloured paper case. Its colour brings to mind the shade of the Banda Sea that surrounds the cradle of Augustina: Haruku, part of the Moluccan Islands.
The satin green dust-cover reflects the colour of the lush forests of the island. The gold writing on the case and dustcover recalls the sun’s rays.
The bag pendant in the shape of the Lazuli Kingfisher (Todiramphus lazuli, Alcedinidae family) : a native of these islands that symbolizes abundance and peace.
The embroidery on the handbag refers to the feathers of the Lazuli Kingfisher. A beautiful fact is that the feathers of the Kingfisher reflect light, created by a phenomenon called Structural Coloration.
The lab-grown diamonds – from the diamond capital of the world: Antwerp – which we use as the eye for the Lazuli Kingfisher pendant are associated with love, strength, invincibility, and health.
And last but not the least: the name ILNI is a formation of the founder’s children’s initials.
* Certifications: PETA, 100% Made in Italy, and IGI certified lab-grown diamonds.
