The inspiration of KHAMAMA emerges out of the wondrous unification of two universes: The man-made 21st century avant-garde universe with minimalistic lines, architectural designs and artificial creations and the lustrous, baroque and florid universe of nature creating inimitable forms, patterns and colours.
The splendid merger of universes profoundly affects every facet of KHAMAMA and our pursuit to be at the forefront of sustainable luxury innovation. We are a brand of the 21st century, deeply rooted in the beauty of nature, driven to preserve.
Against all efforts the real beauty of butterflies as the most beautiful animal in the world remains unmatched. In our quest to create exquisite artefacts, we have sourced the most beautiful real butterfly wings from around the world in a sustainable and ethical manner.
Flourishing nature and human progress are not mutually exclusive; they strongly depend upon each other. Sustainability is inherent in the nature of butterfly farming and a prerequisite for our locally sourced butterfly wings. Discover KHAMAMA’s impact on our sustainability pages:
The concepts for KHAMAMA’s contemporary artefacts are created in Paris by designers with valuable experience from working at Maisons like Louis Vuitton, Lorenz Bäumer and Van Cleef & Arpels. Their artistic savoir faire enables KHAMAMA’s avant-garde creations to flourish with the Parisian expertise of Haute Joallerie.
La Maison KHAMAMA is based in the United Kingdom where our craftsmen and artisans create the magnificent artefacts with utmost dedication to detail. Every KHAMAMA iPhone case is hand made with precision. We strongly believe both in sustainability and local manufacturing in Cheshire, England.
“KHAMAMA” is the Cherokee word for “butterfly.” For the Cherokee Native Americans, butterflies are the connection between the human world and the world of their gods.
The first time a Cherokee, hundreds of years ago, created this mellifluous word to describe butterflies as the epitome of freedom, elegance and unmatchable natural beauty captures our core essence – the positive connection between humanity and nature - KHAMAMA.
Our monogram illustrates the two M’s of the word KHAMAMA. It can also be seen as the mirrored sigma sign associated with mathematical sums. We interpret this symbol as the accumulation of natural beauty.
By merging the natural and artificial beauty, our monogram captures the symmetrical form, which is a symbolic depiction of a butterfly. The sum of symmetry and balance creates perfection in nature. It is our mission to preserve the allure of nature through each of our artefacts.
