YLA was founded by Laleh and Anastasia. Having lived in 10 countries between them, they have been influenced by a variety of cultures and styles, which is why their collection is one of eclecticism.
Laleh and Anastasia continue to travel the world in search of inspiration and materials for YLA's collections. Each piece is hand made with much attention to quality and detail. YLA's design team work with a variety of materials including metal (plated with silver or 14 karat gold), semi-precious stones, crystals, wood, suede and leather.
