The possibility of launching the production of individual accessories in Russia is also being considered.
Elena Lapko: “I have always believed in the NOOSA-Amsterdam brand and do not doubt it for a minute now. Looking into the happy eyes of our customers, I understand that Nusa is a special brand with a deep meaning. In the modern world, where fashion sometimes reaches the point of absurdity, it is very important to preserve spirituality and faith."

The craftsmen dyed it by hand in three colors: light gray, fuchsia, as well as a natural skin tone, and decorated the items with stylish metal staples.
