Based in Austin, women-led Raven + Lily’s sustainable designs are inspired by nature and the environment, using sustainable materials. Check their 2021 holiday offerings below:
“All our leather styles are designed in-house. We work closely with our artisan partners in Ethiopia to ensure we maintain responsible and sustainable production practices; such as producing locally, using hand-dyed vegetable-based colors, and utilizing the bi-product of Ethiopia’s farming communities.”
“Our jewelry offering is one of the categories we’re most proud of at Raven + Lily. It’s truly a melding of craft, regions, and skills to make these styles come to life. All our brass is sustainably sourced upcycled brass that is always hand-shaped by our partners in Kenya. All of our stones are from a husband and wife owned lapidary in Ethiopia – these stones are mined, cut + shaped, and polished by hand before they are sent to Kenya to be placed in our designed settings.”
“Our work with our artisan partners is truly something special. Each piece is made using hand-spun, hand-dyed, and hand-woven cotton. With every season we introduce new colorways in our favorite designs.”
