This is the new brand humour.noir®

humour.noir® stands for sustainable, vegan women's handbags. Each of our bags is based on natural, carefully-selected raw materials. These are Piñatex®, Cartina®, cork and canvas.
humour.noir® handbags are perfect down to the last detail and show that an exclusiv and a sustainable lifestyle need not be mutually exclusive, but perfectly complementary. Ecological fashion can be luxorious. The slogan "be unique. be extravégant." characterises our brand humour.noir®: The highest demands on design, quality and materials meet the finest hand craftsmanship in the bags. Vegan and natural resources leave a positive footprint and conserve resources. We combine exclusive, natural, leather-free materials (Piñatex®, Cartina®, cork or canvas) in a unique mix to make every designer bag an experience. Be it a shopper, bucket bag or handbag - innovative young designs become vegan luxury handbags. A studio in Italy makes each model by hand. Our young brand attaches importance to fair production conditions.

humour.noir® is pure love

humour.noir® is love: love for nature, love for exclusive materials, love for unique designs, love for moving messages. For self-confident, modern women who express their personality with their fashion and lifestyle - while living diversity. humour.noir® customers have their own point of view, their own perspectives. They are enlightened and question fashion brands in terms of materials, design, workmanship and production. Existing products in the field of sustainable fashion accessories do not meet the requirements: design, quality and materials do not fully satisfy many women. humour.noir® shows that it can be done differently. The brand meets the spirit of the time with its vegan fashion accessories.

Collection with sixteen handbag models

Our first collection is called "Diversity" and has sixteen handbag models in a total of 42 variations. The collection includes a barrel, bucket bag, clutch, pouch, purse, satchel and shopper or tote bag. Based in Berlin, humour.noir® Germany GmbH is the company behind this exclusive, sustainable brand. The new brand was launched on the market in spring 2018 and stands for exclusive, vegan designer bags made from natural raw materials. The brand is aimed at women with high standards regarding sustainability, design, exlusivity and craftsmanship. Each handbag is intricately hand-made in Italy. The face behind the humour.noir® brand is the entrepreneur Jennifer Steinke.


Inspired by the beauty of nature

The idea of creating a vegan, sustainable and exclusive fashion brand came about during a journey through Africa. Back in Germany, Jenny designed the first handbags for humor.noir®.
Wide-open spaces, a fascinating wildlife, the diversity of nature and exciting encounters - a journey through indescribable Africa is the impulse for humour.noir®. Inspired by the beauty of nature, Jenny founds humour.noir®. She wants to create a fashion brand that is vegan and sustainable, reinterprets exclusivity and convinces with its fresh design. A brand that asks questions, is different, but remains unmistakable and distinctive. The humour.noir® collection consists exclusively of vegan handbags and includes barrel, bucket bag, clutch, pouch, purse, satchel and tote bag.

Jenny founds humour.noir®

Jennifer Steinke had an idyllic childhood in rural Lower Saxony. She felt a connection to nature from an early age - something that shapes her approach and her style today. She graduated from the renowned Academy of Fashion Management in Nagold. Working as a purchaser for a European young fashion chain, she became very familiar with the processes in a large fashion company before she became independent with her own label humour.noir®. Her own style is characterised by elegant, timeless models teamed with young, edgy designs.

Social responsibility and fair conditions

With humor.noir®, Jenny makes a promise to the fashion world and to nature: "I assure you that we manufacture exclusively from vegan, sustainable materials that are free of lead, nickel and animal raw materials. I deliberately chose not to produce in the Far East because of the importance of social responsibility and fair conditions. Each humour.noir® handbag is handmade in Europe." Her first collection expresses the love of nature - paired with exclusive, vegan materials (Piñatex®, Cartina®, cork, canvas) - and is inspired by the fashion spirit of urban metropolises. humour.noir® handbags emphasise the uniqueness of every modern woman. humour.noir® is the bag for a new generation: for enlightened, style-conscious, natural women who make a statement with what they wear. That's why for Jenny every single humor.noir® customer is "be unique. be extravégant."
