Philippa French is so much more than a business creating unique handcrafted jewellery. Its primary purpose is to empower people.
Owner, Philippa Yorke-Smith is passionate about seeing people’s lives change through their craft. She works directly with many crafters in Durban, South Africa.
Each artisan Philippa works with is directly responsible for supporting their direct and extended families. Many of the crafters are single mothers or grandmothers, along with young men who are also taking care of their mothers and grandmothers.
The sense of community amongst the artisans is enormous, and every order helps to benefit these incredibly worthy individuals, of all ages.
Philippa and her team are very close, all working together to fulfil their mutual dream of opening stores worldwide one day, via the concept of “fashion thorough philanthropy.”
Their work has been commissioned around the world including the USA and UK and it’s not surprising when you see the exceptional quality and high standard of craftsmanship firsthand. Each item is a wearable work of art, using only the best quality Czech glass beads.
