Raven + Lily is a socially-conscious lifestyle brand dedicated to empowering women through design.
Founded by Kirsten Dickerson and Sophia Lin, who share a close friendship and a passion for fashion and ethical design, Raven + Lily was created as a platform to utilize those passions to alleviate poverty among women.
Raven + Lily currently helps employ marginalized women in India, Ethiopia, Kenya, Cambodia, Pakistan, Malaysia, Guatemala, and the USA at fair trade wages to give them access to a safe job, sustainable income, health care, education, and a real chance to break the cycle of poverty for themselves and their families. Partnering with over a thousand women in 13 artisan groups around the world, Raven + Lily sells wholesale to over 300 retailers as well as operating a flagship store in Austin. Raven + Lily is committed to providing products that are made by hand, follow fair trade standards, and are eco-friendly. It continues to grow its partnerships and to work to empower women across the globe.
Raven + Lily focuses on elegant jewelry, apparel, and accessories in a range of culturally reflective styles with a modern bohemian feel. All goods are designed here in the US, and handmade by women in small and often-traditional non-factory settings around the globe.
The new Fall Collection will launch in store and online August 11th. It will feature some amazing new knits, leather vests, leather handbags, and more!
Ellie and I recently had the opportunity to visit their Austin storefront to play dress-up with their beautiful, ethically-made clothing and jewelry. AND their End of Season Final Sale is going on now, which means up to 60% off in store (through August 10th) and on many of the items we tried on.
We are so excited to be giving away the Telau: Gold Braid Long Necklace! This necklace, made in Ethiopia, is a beautiful staple for your wardrobe. Braided strands knot on each side to create a delicate look. Bullet casings are melted down to form these beads, transforming what was once meant for harm into something beautiful. The making of this necklace empowers HIV+ women living near the Entoto Mountain.
