About

Compassion Art and Fashion was born out of the desire to help those who could not help themselves. When pictures of the children who were victims of the devastating Haiti earthquake were seen by my daughter on the television, she felt great compassion for children who had so little and lost so much. We decided we must do something whatever that was to help. We couldn’t go there but we could try to raise money to help feed the children.

My daughter called the fundraisers Compassionista Fashionista, compassion and fashion working together to help those in need.
From this humble start began our business plan. Our love for creating lovely things and our desire to help those in need have become two of our passions. God has blessed us with a love for wanting to serve and put smiles on others faces. We like to make and sell gifts that hopefully inspire and brighten the lives of others.
Our flower brooches and hairclips are handcrafted. Each one is an original. We design and hand stamp our line of coasters so no two are exactly alike. Each tile is hand picked and matched per set. We are happy to customize upon request. We have expanded this line to include trivets and plaques that can be personalized with your house number or name if so desired. As our inspirations and hearts lead us, our line of gifts and fashions is ever expanding.
We continue to support those in need by contributing a portion of our profits to the following charitable organizations:

Kids Against Hunger
Shepard’s Gate
Gospel for Asia


We believe we should all do our part in going green to preserve our planet . We re-use shipping boxes and repurpose our local newspaper as packing material. If you order from us feel free to read about our wonderful local community Discovery Bay.
