It has always been the dream at La Coqueta to build a successful business, success that is not only measured by making clothing that people love, but also success by helping others who are less fortunate than ourselves. We aim to be ethical in everything we do, from the raw materials we source, promoting traditional techniques, to the way we produce our clothing by supporting small business, and giving back whenever we can.

We are so lucky to be involved in the business of children’s fashion; there is so much joy that children bring to our lives. Their enthusiasm, ideas, and spirit are contagious and we want to encourage them to learn and grow so we can build a better world for the future. From the very beginning, La Coqueta has been donating clothing from past seasons as a way to help children who may not have the same material possessions that we do. Our donations have transported us across the globe to El Salvador, Guatemala, India, and Egypt.

We have always chosen to do charitable work in places we have visited as a family; for example the village of Delwara, India where some children must walk for more than an hour every day to fill a jug of water for their family, and have limited access to education. In Delwara we met with the locals who introduced us to the local school, and we were able to work together with the school to gift clothing to the young children in the town. 

In El Salvador La Coqueta had the privilege to work alongside Glasswing International, a charity that invests in communities existing strengths via the mobilisation of resources. Whether that be monetary, humanitarian or in our case clothing, distributing these as well as food and medicine to rural communities across South America. 

More recently we have had the pleasure to work with the Elisa Sednaoui Foundation, a foundation who work to promote accessible education that is both academic and creative, helping to empower young children to realise their full potential and contribute to their communities. Gifting clothing to the foundation to pass on to the children participating in their education programs.

We are always looking for partnership opportunities; if you are an organization or charity please get in touch we would love to hear from you.
