“It’s not by accident that the pristine wilderness of our planet disappears as the understanding of our inner wild nature fades.” - Clarissa Pinkola Estes
We are lovers of the earth and all of her magic.
Our pieces are made to inspire you to move through the world, from an empowered place of your own personal authenticity and truth, strengthened by our collective ancestors and elders. We believe in living a harmonious, intuitive, inspired & passionate lifestyle... in doing everything possible to work toward global healing & restoration and in the strengthening and remembering of our awareness of the beauty and wonder of life.
A woman owned, philanthropic business, Catori Life hopes to be an example of how an organization can be led by feminine qualities. At the center of all of our work is an ethos of care, compassion, healing and nurturing. We strive to always act from a place of love.
To create the healthy culture we aspire to, first we must honor the beautiful wild earth that is our home, acknowledging that sustainable practice in business is essential for ensuring integrity and a bountiful future. We are committed to taking responsibility and contributing to global healing,
Inspired by the wisdom of ancient peoples and guided by contemporary experts, we are forever relearning how to act respectfully to mother nature and her diverse creations. We work closely with our resident archeologist to ensure accuracy of artifact based designs and to understand the harmonious living practices of our ancestors as we create and release new designs inspired by the ancient ones.
We support organizations that seek to protect and regenerate endangered ecosystems and empower people to live a more integrated existence within nature. For every piece of jewelry sold we plant 20 trees. Since 2015 we are proud to have planted almost one million trees!
From our meticulous process of making jewelry with reclaimed metals, to our careful choice of shipping distributors and stores carrying our collections, we continuously strive to work with full integrity, understanding the challenges in seeking to be truly ethical.
Our hope and goal is that the positive impact we create outweighs any footprint that we may leave and that Catori can breathe inspiration and beauty into the lives of our customers and employees. We hope to inspire our collectors as an international community of caring people, to work toward mindful consumption that supports global restoration. Together we hope to live in harmony with nature, following our intuition and passions, inspired always by the beauty and wonder of life.
Catori Life Jewelry is made in the USA using ethically sourced and reclaimed materials. Considering the entire production line and everyone involved from start to finish, we create your product with diligent care, love and respect.
We continuously challenge ourselves, refining our business in alignment with our principles. This means regularly bettering our material sourcing, from the jewelry itself to our shipping and packaging. Our packing and mailers are made with recycled and eco-conscious materials and any plastic used are biodegradable or compostable.
Once your jewelry has arrived you may wish to reuse the shipping box as a place for keeping notes, intentions or memories, working with the power of your piece in your own personal ritual.
Being truly sustainable is a virtue no one has yet mastered, however we will continue to work towards a world where sustainable practice is the norm.
We deeply value our employees and believe in openness and honesty. We aim to lead by example, showing that slow fashion can transform how businesses operate, with fairness at the core and abundance for all those involved. Unlike fast fashion outlets that try to cut corners wherever possible, we offer generous and fair wages to all of our employees.
