“Our mission with ‘creator platform’ is to foster creative freedom by offering a space that both ignites the community and supports individual artists’ financial momentum. Having formed Le Inka in 2019, we’ve had time to build a committed consumer base interested in wearing beautiful artwork. Being able to facilitate access to a network as such is a key selling point for our new service,” says Ishrath Hasmin, Founder of Le Inka.
The platform already contains a wide range of artists whose mediums span across digital art, Illustrations, mirror art, Arabic calligraphy, art education, portrait art, mural art, mixed media acrylic drawing art, and abstract expressionism art.
“Our soft launch has attracted a lot of artists across the region and our target is to onboard over 1000 artists during the next few months’’, added Ishrath.
Having established a reputation for revolutionizing the freedom of expression and breaking cultural and religious tattoo barriers, Le Inka, founded by husband-and-wife duo, Ishrath Hasmin, and Safa Munafer, developed a modern take on temporary tattoos for a more natural look. The result is a far cry from old-school versions that sit on top of the skin and peel off quickly.
Aligning with the new generation of consumers’ preferences, the brand uses evolved temporary tattoo elements and technology. Plant-based and vegan they are developed to sink into the first layer of skin, allowing it to be water-permeable, breathable and does not act as a skin barrier. The colour evolves to last for two weeks before gently fading away when your skin naturally regenerates. Unlike henna which stains brown in colour, Le Inka tattoos develop into black or dark blue colour giving a realistic tattoo finish appealing to both men and women.
By offering a new way of self-expression and a new category of fashion accessories, temporary tattoos are becoming a new fashion movement by adding a touch of personality to individuals who wear them – a solution for those who crave tattoos but cannot commit due to health, religious or personal reasons.
Le Inka currently ships to over 26+ countries worldwide from Dubai and recently launched into retail across UAE with Faces, a luxury global fashion retail chain.
