In Special Consultative Status with the Economic and Social Council
KOKET, a leading international designer and manufacturer of luxury furnishings, partnered with the Global Fund for Widows in 2012 to create the Camilia. Empassioned by the Global Fund’s cause, the incomparable talents powering Koket, created a masterpiece – the Camilia – to grace the most regal of dining rooms with its elegance and splendor. Inspired by the aristocratic palaces of the Alexandrian pashas of Egypt, the mother of pearl Camilia is crowned by artisan hand-carved peacock, meticulously engraved and delicately finished in gold leaf.
Perhaps most intriguing is that the Camila was created in passionate support of widows and female heads of households in the developing world. Koket’s personal commitment to bringing an end to the vicious cycle of poverty – by empowering the most vulnerable of the poor through skills based training, education, access to employment, and access to micro-capital – have culminated in the creation of this statement piece. Proceeds from sales of the Camilia will be donated to such widows, affording them with opportunities of health, security, stability, and dignity previously untenable.
