Finchittida

"Emerging jewellery label Finchittida is a brand on a mission. Inspired by a combination of their Laos-London upbringing, their super cool designs are gathering a cult following, including singer FKA Twiggs, who often takes to the stage adorned with their pieces. Yet the accomplishment that really makes the designers, twins Lisa and Tida, most proud is that through purchase of their designs they and you the customer are helping to clear unexploded bombs across Laos. One piece of jewellery purchased equals 1m2 land made safe. Power dressing indeed."

Culture Clash collection

Culture Clash - is our new line of limited edition jewellery pieces, created in collaboration with artisans from around the world.

Our first Culture Clash collection is a collaboration with the Chilean artisan Marcelo Martinez of Nativo Copper. Marcelo has spent his whole life making unusual wire-work accessories on the streets of South America. We fell in love with his craftsmanship, and designed this collection of earrings, necklaces, bracelets, chokers and body chains together - uniting his traditional South American wire-work techniques with our Laos x London style. All the jewels are available gold or silver plated.

This limited edition collection will be available to pre-order at Stylist Live next week!

Interview: Lisa & Tida


Words by Samantha Leese

Twin sisters, Tida & Lisa Finch know a thing or two about selling jewelry for a purpose. When their mother fled Laos in the aftermath of the war in Vietnam, she sold a necklace she had hidden in her shoe to pay for dressmaking lessons that she would use to support her family. The sisters, who live and work in London, founded Finchittida shortly after graduating from University of the Arts London with design degrees in 2012. Their mission was to create a game-changing, purpose-driven brand with products as cool as its ethos.

In the past three years, their elegant pieces have won the jewelry designers a celebrity following and a commission from Hollywood: Finchittida created a bridal headdress, laser cut from silver mirror Perspex, for Mila Kunis to wear in her role as Queen of the Universe in the 2015 film Jupiter Ascending.
Finchittida’s fourth collection, Culture Clash, launched at London Fashion Week this September, fuses intricate design methods and motifs from across three continents: Asia, Europe and South America.
Fresh from a month-long trip to Laos in April, the sisters encountered a Chilean artisan, Marcelo Martinez of Nativo Copper, whose handcrafted jewelry is inspired by his travels in South America. “Our vision was to reinvent his traditional methods of woven metals in a [contemporary] London style and combine them with our Lao motifs,” Lisa says, “to create a really fierce, fashion- forward collection.”
Of their own mixed heritage (their father is British), Tida and Lisa say they had always longed to connect with the Southeast Asian part of their identity while growing up in London. “Our way of
doing this is through fashion,” Tida says. “We love the concept of yin and yang; balance is everything.”
Tida and Lisa have partnered with the Mines Advisory Group (MAG) in Laos to support the clearance of bombs in their mother’s homeland. Some two million tonnes of ordnance were dropped on Laos during the Vietnam War—the most ever per capita. When the twins discovered that one third of these had been left dangerously unexploded, Lisa says, “It was definitely a question of how do we help, and not whether we should.”

For every piece of jewelry Finchittida sells, one square meter of land is made safe for future generations. So if you don their new engraved dragon hoop earrings, for example, you’ll both be a beautiful vision and help the Finch sisters realize their beautiful vision of a bomb-free Laos.
