Ladneva is Latvian jewellery and apparel brand established in 2017 in Riga by Anna, grand-grand-grand daughter of Anna Ladneva. We value artisanal quality, which is represented in a mixture of pop and subcultural styles, balance between classics and modernity. Our roots are back to 19th century of Tzar Russian Empire, handmade sewing techniques, a femininity with some traits of a slight social hooliganism, old days topics, punctuality, honesty, gorgeousness, a refined taste, good manners, as well as democratic values and a casual shine.
All items available for buying are unique, meaning that there are no two completely similar pieces.
The roots of the brand Ladneva raise to the previous generations of its founder, Anna, and go back to the 80s of 19th century. The generations story, as told by Anna’s grandmother Louise, passionate about history and genealogy, born in an ancient Russian town Murom located on the shore of river Oka refers to the middle-class citizens of Murom city, and further on to the ancient ranks at the court of Peter I in 17th century, namely the falconer. Anna’s grand-grand-grand mother Anna, whose maiden surname was Ladneva, born in 1860, had a long, interesting, and tragic story of her life to be told separately one day.
Anna Ladneva was very good in sewing, applying her skills to make beautiful apparel for her daughters. The story about her daughters life and personality, described as a bit socially hooligan and rebellious, was passed from generation to generation. The brand Ladneva inherits the value of handmade work and bases its work on the principles of unique pieces creation.
The founder of Ladneva brand, Anna, lives in Riga, respects her roots, and creates unique jewellery and apparel pieces.
