Nogol Jalali is an Iranian designer who has made quite a name for herself when it comes to her handbag designs. Nogol used to explore all kinds of materials to create her vision when she was very little. Her passion for art and design inspired her to attend a graduate program in accessories design at Domus Academy, founded by Gianfranco Ferrè in Milan, Italy.
After successfully completing her master’s degree, she had the opportunity to work closely with Diego Dolcini, Moreschi, Daniela Puppa, Fabio Cammarata and Frankie Morello, through whom she learned the practical foundations of the fashion industry.
In 2007, Nogol established her own brand called NONO, which is best recognized for its glamorous, comfortable, spacious and lightweight bags, all handcrafted with special attention to detail. In 2015, she introduced her new line
of Kilim Bags, rich in a variety of colors and designs, by integrating traditional Iranian weaving techniques and patterns into modern practical designs.
The brand proudly supports a network of artisanal weavers, almost all of whom are women who work tirelessly to not only craft beautiful Kilims, but also to support their entire families.
NONO Kilim Line was inspired by the belief that supporting these enterprising women would improve their livelihoods while allowing centuries-old traditions to flourish in the modern age.
