THE POWER OF SYMBOLISM
The incorporation of symbols in aaina & co’s designs reflect Mother Earth’s messages to us that our inner strength comes from an eternal source of natural beauty. We are not always able to control life’s circumstances or know how we will react to the unexpected. How we meet these challenges however will make all the difference to our inner peace. Feeling and seeing one’s aaina & co product will provide the uplifting motivation and inner energy needed to overcome the obstacles in our lives. All of our items are small enough to go modestly unnoticed until you need them most.
The triangle is purposefully used in our packaging and several jewellery pieces. Ancient cultures have used three sides of equal length conjoined by three corners of equal angles as a powerful symbol for centuries. Regardless of one’s faith, the trinity of an equilateral triangle points towards the heavens, linking the spiritual and unknown to the earthly and beautiful.
All aaina & co jewellery comes in a small purse made of eco-friendly vegan leather. It is a very practical item that will allow our clients to keep it for a longer amount of time and continue using it in many different ways. For example: it can be used as a purse to keep change and other small valuables either on its own or in a bigger bag.
One of aaina & co’s goals is to generate revenue for philanthropic causes. Whilst living in Bali Dina became close friends with a famous Swiss Artist, named Saba. Saba runs a registered charity called Saba’s Kids. Saba and her husband were troubled by how many Balinese children drop out of school because their parents cannot afford the basic educational necessities such as books and stationery. This wonderful couple do all that they can to sponsor children from the poorest backgrounds in order to keep them in school and provide them with an education that helps to lift them and their families out of poverty for good. aaina & co supports their efforts by donating 10% of all profits to Saba’s Kids.
THE ORIGIN STORY
The brand’s name Aaina originates from the ancient Indian word for mirror. In 2012 founder & CEO Dina Meier traveled around the ancient and mystical country of India. Whilst there she was inspired by the beauty of a young girl named Aaina. Despite already owning and managing a company in Bali, Dina was determined to create a new company named after the girl that would reflect the inner beauty that connects us all. She realised the importance of wearing accessories that enhance one’s sense of wellbeing while at the same time grounding them in the earth’s abundance and positive energy.
