KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 31 — After successfully launching its flagship store in Midvalley Megamall this past year, Kaimirra Tutan continues to make news.
The luxury brand just announced that it is now the exclusive distributor for Korite jewellery in Asia.
The two brands — both Canadian — recently held a signing ceremony to appoint Kaimirra Tutan as the exclusive distributor of Korite jewellery, ammolite and Canadian ammonites for Asian countries such as Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam, as well as Taiwan and Korea.
“Today is an important milestone for Korite. As we look to further expand into Asia, Kaimirra Tutan gives us the ability to reach consumers through their retail stores, e-commerce and wholesale opportunities,” said Korite CEO David Lui.
“This partnership not only allows us to work with another Canadian company but it is also an essential element of our future growth, and we couldn't be more excited,” Lui added.
Korite will also supply ammolite gemstones for Kaimirra Tutan's exclusive jewellery collections.
“Korite was a natural choice for us as they have set the global standard for ammolite jewellery and gemstones over the past 40 years,” said Kaimirra Tutan co-founder and executive director Addison Foo.
“As we continue to expand and grow in Asia, we know our partnership with Korite will allow us to bring the finer things in life to consumers through the world's only multi-coloured, organic gemstone,” Foo added.
This new partnership will give consumers in Asia access to Korite’s ammolite, a 71- million-year-old gemstone.
This unique gemstone comes from the fossilisation of Ammonite Cephalopods, which are found around the world yet only in the Bearpaw Formation of Southern Alberta did they mineralise and become a rare and colourful gemstone.
Ammolite is the last of the gemstones accepted by the World Jewellery Confederation in the past 300 years and amongst the rarest, placing it alongside its peers Opal, Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald.
Most recently, the Province of Alberta declared ammolite as the official gemstone of Alberta.
