I first used my Ni Qua croc leather tote in my OOTD: Crisp and Cool post. I then tested its durability when I brought it in one of my travels to Japan- which reminds me, I’ll be sharing some OOTDs in the next posts. I was surprised when I got home from my vacation. My croc leather tote was in perfectly good condition! Note that when I travel, taking care of my bag is my last priority. I slide it under the seat, I place it on the floor, I hang it, etc. But guess what?! I inspected my bag and there was no scratch or scuff. I’m impressed. 😀
For those who are not aware, Ni QUA is a chic brand crafted in the Philippines. No doubt, I love leather bags. But when I learned that Ni Qua is a homegrown brand, I got even more excited! 😀 Their bags are genuine leather with quality craftsmanship at great prices. Aside from bags, they also have accessories, apparel, home and wellness. Their designs are inspired by “Easy Chic”, targeting working women, full time mothers, virtual working individuals who want to always look luxurious yet comfortable going their everyday task.
Recently, they launched a new collection and I can already see myself carrying their purses! Uh-oh! I love how Ni Qua makes their bags look so simple at the same time very classy.
Here’s a medium-sized leather tote with pony hair handles. What makes this even more adorable? The handles are changeable! The body and handles are sold separately. The body is priced at PHP 1,895 and the handles are priced from PHP 995.
This is another variation of the tote above. This one has softer leather.
It also comes in a carry-all duffle bag. It’s made of nylon and it’s water resistant and has zipper enclosure making it a perfect travel tote! 😀
And here’s another must-have bag that you can carry around for your day to night events- the Topaz Clutch! Oh em geee!!! It’s sooo pretty!!! It’s a collaboration of Ni Qua and Topaz Horizon (Frances Sales). Congrats Frances! 😀 Topaz Clutch comes in 2 colors- all-brown and brown-pink combo. If you know me, I’ll go for the brown-pink combo for sure. I love how that pink leather tassel adds fun to this chic bag. 😀 Each Topaz Clutch is priced at PHP 1,395.
Here’s lovely Michelle modelling the Topaz Clutch…
They also have Envelope Clutch in different colors. Check out mine… It has my initials on it! 😀
Here are some of Ni Qua’s summer collection that’s still available online. Well, it’s summer all-year round here in Manila! 😀
Aside from the chic bags, they also have comfy flats.
So, which ones are your favorites? They even have more choices in their website! 😀
