Our name "IKNOSGENERATION" was inspired by the mysterious island of Sardinia in the heart of the Mediterranean sea.
"IKNOS(ICHNOS)" was the ancient name of Sardinia in Greek because according to the legend, the island was the footprint of Zeus.
"GENERATION" expresses our commitment to sustainability, respect of nature and dedication to the ideals of craftsmanship.
Today, IKNOSGENERATION was born with mission, we are inspired by the footprint of our ancestors, we do our best to create the finest natural product in the world, sustainably with minimum environmental footprint, and hopefully, this is our way to re-inspire the future generations.
Sardinia is Italy's second largest island, it is famous as the BLUE ZONE, the island of longevity with the highest concentration rate of centenarians in the world.

Originally from mainland China, Sisi studied political science at Hong Kong Baptist University and acquired her exchange diploma in Sciences Po Paris. She also holds an MBA degree from HKUST.
Sisi started her career in the luxury industry focusing on jewelry and watches' product marketing and global wholesale business development.
In 2018, she moved to Switzerland and is currently settled between in Zurich and Sardinia Island. As an industry professional, a global citizen, and a mother of two Sisi often questioned the true meaning of luxury. On the remote and wild island of Sardinia, she came to realize that luxury is honoring time, craftsmanship, nature, and its resources.
Luxury should be sustainable and aim to create a better environment for the future – this is how IKNOSGENERATION was born.
