Each season, Raven + Lily creates a lifestyle collection that reflects the beauty and culture of the artisan women who handcraft our exclusive designs. We currently partner with over 1500 women artisans and follow fair trade standards that honor these women and their families.
As a company that focuses on living thoughtfully and simply, we were inspired by Japanese minimalism for our Fall/Winter ‘16 Collection. The designs are meant to complement, not distract, from a woman’s inherent beauty and value. The apparel is modern and refined, using luxurious, sustainable textiles such as alpaca, organic denim, silk/wool blends, remnant jersey, mohair, and cupro. Nothing is over-stated or complicated.
Our accessories and home goods also follow our ethical ethos and include upcycled horn and brass jewelry, vegetable-tanned leather accessories, eco-friendly gifts, and home decor. The sustainable, timeless style makes this collection the perfect base for a capsule wardrobe and was designed to be worn through multiple seasons.
