More than just jewelry, these are wearable art, handmade to perfection. As expressions of the creative soul, they are edgy but timeless. Playful with the use of materials like crystals, stones, fabrics, leather, and more, the designs are brought to life with techniques like wire crochet, bead weaving and embroidery. As such, no two pieces are ever exactly alike. And because a Hanca will express who you are, it will evoke emotions, invite conversation, and inspire connections. Hanca Design is a casually chic collection of jewelry by Marie Emmanuel.

So I’ve never been into design or fashion. Nope, three years ago I was the typical banking executive in my home country: 9 to 5 shifts (hmm…well… more like 8 to 6pm). Typical days included meetings, preparing presentations, checking on numbers, etc…To be completely honest I do miss it; specially the nice suits and high heels! Nowadays t-shirts, shorts and flip flops seem to be my dress code. But in my defense…I mean… can you blame me?! It’s 36 C outside!!! Anyway, a year after I landed in this very far away land I discovered HancaDesigns. I just absolutely loved it! From the unique design (my favorite feature: nobody will have something alike) to the materials: leather, silk and crystals mixed together for a funky but chic piece. You can just wear a pair of jeans, basic top, flats and style it with a nice statement necklace. It makes dressing up so much easier without great effort. One of my all-time favorite accessories are the bracelets. You can find them in any color, different shades and designs; another great thing about them is that it’s easy to mix and match! So you can always wear different stuff. - Rocio Fournier

HancaHome is part of the overall design line launched by Marie Emmanuel. It is based out of Manila but showcases its products in The UK India and other countries. What I love about it is its elements of style and modernity which come together beautifully. Also Hanca uses raw materials which are sourced locally in The Philippines..which not only sets it apart from anything you will fund in a store..but it also privides a boost to local handicrafts like Abaca which Hanca uses. The vibrant colors, the immaculate finish and the unique decor style is what attracted me to this line of home products. Once I started using Hanca ..there was no going back ! No more store bought table linen for me!! - Mekhla Chakrabarti
