We design jackets that you can’t live without. we want them to be the jewel of your wardrobe and we want you to pass them down one day.
The leather industry is known to be a man's world. Workshops, artisans, tanneries and brands are owned and operated by men, and it took several years to establish ourselves as a serious-player in the Parisian leather industry. Nour Hammour is run by Nour and Erin, who met in Paris while getting their Master's Degrees. With an office and showroom based in the 16th arrondissement of Paris by the Arc de Triomphe, our team of six young women have grown a business that oversees collection development, digital and photographic creative and production in Paris and Istanbul.
As our business grew, we made the decision to move part of our production to Istanbul in order to keep up with demand. We began to work with workshops who partnered with other French luxury brands, but we found ourselves again in a very masculine environment that prioritized large-scale production and would more than occasionally try to cut-corners on quality. We knew there had to be a better way to produce at scale that also fulfilled the type of attention our female clients deserved and expected when investing in their wardrobe. Fatma Hansoy was one of our production account managers in Istanbul, and she shared our vision for a new, bespoke way of leather garment production: it's more unique, it's more ecological, and most importantly, it's what women want. Just a few months before Covid-19 hit, we moved all our Turkish production to open a workshop together, and have since scaled 400% in the last 2 years.
