Alajas is a line of sustainably sourced pearl and mother of pearl accessories designed in New York City and handmade in Manila, Philippines. The brand is proudly owned and powered by women who aim to reintroduce the Philippine archipelago as the fabled Pearl of the Orient.
The only way to keep our business growing is to have a symbiotic relationship with Mother Nature. Our materials are are sustainably sourced from oyster farms which naturally filter nitrogen and heavy metals, creating a natural bio-solution for polluted water.
We must respect the natural resources that provide the materials that we work with. We believe in conscious consumerism, which is why we only produce a small batch of accessories every season.
In addition to that, Alajas works with skilled female artisans in order to support their livelihood and add additional streams of revenue for them to provide for their families.
