Founded by Kirsten Dickerson and Sophia Lin who share a close friendship and 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 Africa, India, Cambodia and the United States at fair trade wages to give them access to a safe job, sustainable income, healthcare, education, and a real chance to break the cycle of poverty for themselves and their families. Every product from Raven + Lily is handmade, fair trade and eco-friendly.
The Ethiopia Collection is comprised of statement jewelry designs crafted with handmade beads and charms from melted bullet casings (from former war conflicts) and vintage silver coins. This collection empowers HIV-positive women in Ethiopia. The Ethiopia Collection also includes naturally dyed, hand-loomed scarves and hand-knit scarves, empowering at-risk women and women recovering from child birth injuries.
The India Collection features gorgeous recycled cotton papers, hand-carved wood journals, metallic leather jewelry, and hand-milled natural soaps. This collection empowers marginalized women in Northern India.
The Cambodia Collection includes eco-friendly bags and t-shirts made with hand-loomed, natural-dyed, and remnant materials (with full eco-friendly apparel collection slated for release in Fall 2013). These hand-printed pieces are made with love by at-risk women in Cambodia.
