RAVEN + LILY DEBUTS E-BOUTIQUE6:48 PM
Established by a group of creative artists who have a passion for social justice and the environment, Raven + Lily is a modern day design house dedicated to creating economic opportunities and partnerships for impoverished women both locally and globally. And guess what?! You can buy their pretty bits and baubles online now....yippeeee!
At first glance, the jewelry and paper goods are certainly covetable...but then you hear the story behind them. Stories of Ethiopian women taking old bullet shells found in their war ravaged villages, and turning them into the delicate beads used in the necklaces to benefit victims of HIV/AIDS. Stories of marginalized women in India who gain employment and sustainability for themselves and their families by crafting stationery and journals from 100% recycled materials. Yea. Wow. It's just a beautiful thing all around.
