Alajas is a line of sustainably sourced pearl and mother of pearl accessories designed in New York City and rendered by skilled female artisans 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 organic materials we use are pearl and mother of pearl, which are sustainably sourced from oyster farms. Oyster farms naturally filter water by removing nitrogen and heavy metals from the water they live in, creating a natural bio-solution for polluted water.
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.
