Aurora Hijabs has a purpose for social justice, diversity, and women empowerment.
Our founder, Kaya Gravitter, a Native American convert, focuses her brand and hijab company on women empowerment by constantly donating to the underprivileged and particularly domestic violence shelters.
Her American based hijab company is diverse in a sense where she wants people to see it as a place they belong and where everyone is accepted. Kaya practices what she preaches through her brand, life, and social media. She hires hijabi models of diverse backgrounds. She was told by the many of her African American hijabi and convert friends that they don’t feel really represented in other companies. And that other companies only use darker skinned models to add “a splash of color.”
It is also about charity, because we think giving back is necessary. So, every month 10% of funds are donated to a charity you vote on.
Some charities we have donated to but are not limited to, Nisa Homes, Muslim women focused domestic violence shelters, Mercy Without Limits, Islamic Relief USA, etc.
