Hissia is a jewelry brand with an innovative aesthetic that blends contemporary design, outstanding craftsmanship and sustainability. The name comes from the Swahili language and means “emotion, feeling and passion” which they evoke in the wearer. We love their tribal chic and timeless aesthetic.
The brand was started by husband and wife team from Canary Islands, Beatriz Vergara and Fernando Marco. They create these beautiful pieces you see at Runway2Street using traditional local craftsmanship in small ateliers in Western Africa, India and Spain, fusing different techniques, materials and influences creating truly global designs. Hand carving of natural materials such as wood, horn and bone is done in Africa, semi-precious cutting in India and silver metalwork in Spain. This ensures that they only manufacture small-batches of limited editions with numbers – how cool is that?
Hissia also employs corporate responsibility with an emphasis on ethical and sustainable business model. From the natural resources they use like ebony that comes from reforestation programs to recycling bone and horn collected from slaughter houses, to social impact they have on communities of artisans they work with. Now this is something we should all get behind!
