HOW DID IT ALL STARTED?
I noticed that she used different materials than usually and got curious. That was around 2019. At that time I thought pearls were only for certain kinds of people like the opposite of me. Classic, elegant, traditional. But that was, as I found out later, way far from the truth.
In the upcoming months mom would read a pile of books on creation, quality and origin of pearls and focused all her attention on that tiny round piece of nacre. She threaded many necklaces, some very minimalistic and others more bold. She explained that pearls have different colours and shapes, you just have to find out what type fits you the most.
After mom done it for a while I started noticing all these people on the streets wearing pearls. Men, women, old, young, with a more casual style or even sporty outfit. Some went even crazy with them. When I saw all these examples, it changed my outlook on pearls and inspired me to join mom to build KAITO.
"Pearls are true treasures
of nature, over several years the pearl grows in a shell and becomes a beautiful and durable material. "
