Embracing every step of the way in my healing life journey through wearing, feeling these deities, that is my artifacts, has been a safe path to return when needing empowerment in who I came to become.
My path as a lifestyle brand creator and an interior designer has been full of curious discoveries and experiences and I want to share them with you.
With Love & respect,
A Greek native, Alexandra Koumba, founded her first design company in 2007. Drawing on her background as an antique and fine art collector, she opened the first decorative arts gallery in Athens, Greece. Interior design objects soon followed and became cult items.
Her jewelry collection is available at Bloomingdales online and a selection of our bags is at Anthropologie in the US and around Europe you can find our products in selected boutiques.
All Alexandra's Koumba #ancientinspired designs are handcrafted by local artisans in Greece which is her homeland.

ALEXANDRA'S DESIGN PHILOSOPHY
Alexandra Koumba designs are the perfect blend of cutting-edge fashion with traditional elements producing one-of-a-kind creations.
Her clients fall in love with the modern yet timeless aesthetic that manages to push the envelope while staying imbued with the spirit of her ancient Greek heritage.
Inspired by nature and its abundance of organic forms, the jewelry collection offers three distinct possibilities. Intricate lacework cast in metal represents the designer’s s vintage component. Bones and the broader human and animal form are the second signature motif while foliage, seeds and the insect world provide an exuberant alternative.
Alexandra works in both semi-precious as well as precious metals while fibers are exclusively organic. All items are proudly handmade in Greece by local artisans.
