In the spirit of the holiday season, Covet Fashion is proud to give thanks to select brands that have the spirit of giving ingrained in their DNA. All week long Covet Fashion will be highlighting brands that make the world a more beautiful place not only through their fashionable designs, but also through giving back to those in need.
The Ashley Pittman Collection features jewelry handmade by locally sourced and trained artisans in Kenya. Jewelry styles range from horn, bronze, and semi-precious gemstones, to other indigenous materials.
Along with supporting the local artisan community outside of Nairobi, Ashley Pittman’s charitable foundation is able to contribute to the Kathiani Primary school in rural Kenya - located in an area currently suffering from extreme drought.
Ten percent of all profits made from the jewelry collection help fund both the local school and health care center. Through their contributions, the foundation is able to supply new uniforms, hot lunches, teachers salaries and access to clean, desalinated drinking water.
