WE’RE WOMEN, NOT GIRLS!
Femininity can and should be accentuated and always give you a great feeling – words by the founder of womenswear brand Pearls of Laja.
Pearls of Laja stands for femininity, self-confidence and naturalness and specialises in figure enhancing women’s jeans in the premium segment. Glamour and sustainability merge in a stylish way using sophisticated fits and luxurious, certified organic materials and ecological washes. Thanks to an intelligent fashionable innovation, each style becomes a unique shaping wonder!
The products on offer are just as exquisite as real pearls. This philosophy is already reflected in the brand name: Pearls of Laja. The word ‘Laja’ is not a fancy name, it’s an acronym made up from the first names of the founders – DanieLA and KatJA.

Our vision sees ALL women standing up more self-confidently for their feminine curves – no matter what their age or what clothes size “she” wears.
WE LIVE SUSTAINABILITY
Quality, durability and environmental friendliness are deeply rooted in the Pearls of Laja mission statement. Each garment in the collection is developed according to ethical and ecological principles and produced in certified operations in Germany and Europe. Fairness and respect have priority with us.
They are values that you’ll find in our material, workmanship and washes. Only luxury denim fabrics are used. Our handling is completely biological and fair (GOTS). We pay special attention to a washed look in line with the current trends. At the same time, our garments must be gently processed, free of pollutants. Pearls of Laja also makes sure that transport routes are as short as possible, and we are naturally very economical when it comes to packaging material. This is why each pair of jeans is packed in a lovingly finished, reusable denim shopping bag. Economic sustainability is just as important to us. As a company, we are growing slowly but healthily. We maintain an account with the German ethics bank Ethikbank, and establish long-term relationships with our suppliers and customers. For us, ongoing prospects for our producers and employees are highly important.
What has been your biggest success since launching the business?
Our biggest succes is to see how happy and self-confident all women get, when they finally find the perfect jeans at Pearls of Laja.
Some of our customers haven’t worn jeans for many years, because they couldn´t find the perfect shape or comfortable fit for their figure. With a pair of Pearls of Laja-Jeans these same women get back pure fashion freedom and a positively feminine spirit in their life.
