About us

So glad you've found us! Let's get RADICAL.

Ninka Pop is a modern accessory fashion brand founded by queer Mexican interdisciplinary designer, Sayra Lopez. 

Sayra's goal is to create bold, colourful, and unique jewellery pieces that make a statement and stand out from the minimal aesthetic we are seeing everywhere.

Ninka Pop is what Sayra calls "Radical Fashion". It's about being brave and standing up for what you believe in. For those who dare to be innovative, challenge the status quo, and who are ready to fully embrace themselves and express it through fashion.

Radical is also 80s slang to say something is 'cool' or 'awesome'. Which is also quite fitting for Ninka Pop, since a lot of Sayra's inspiration and design aesthetic comes from the 80s/90s, as well as Memphis Design and Vaporwave. 

To stay up to date with our latest designs and updates, follow Ninka Pop on Instagram @ninkapop  

And, if you are wondering where the inspiration for the name came from, it was from Sayra's awesome daughter, little Ninka. 

Production

Every single pair is designed, laser cut, painted, and assembled by Sayra herself, in Zurich, Switzerland.

Our earrings are made of acrylic which is a lightweight thermoplastic material (PMMA). Acrylic is strong and versatile, and it can also be recycled all the way back to its raw monomer, or reused by being melted into new acrylic sheets. 

Ninka Pop believes in slow fashion and creating with intention, so our collections are limited edition, and new collections come out around every 3-4 months. 

About the artist

Sayra is originally from Mexico and moved to the USA to study Fine Arts and Graphic Design at The University of Pennsylvania. She has been working in the UX/UI field for over twelve years, and she has lived in Philadelphia, London, and now Zurich. She currently works four days a week as a Staff Interaction & UX Designer, and the remainder on the time she is focused on Ninka Pop.
