Kirsten Dickerson and Sophia Lin founded Raven + Lily as a way to empower women through sustainable economic opportunities. Partnering with women in need, Dickerson and Lin create a tangible way for these artisans to make their lives better by offering thier handmade goods in an online market place. From the United States to Ethiopia, Cambodia to India, marginalized women are given the opportunity to have a job with a fair trade wage, healthcare, and education. And they are getting noticed. . (You may have seen them on Elle.com). Forget the fact that the pieces are beyond gorgeous. This Alem Triangle Necklace, Bizualem Scarf, and Uzma Travel Journal are at the top of my list. Raven + Lily is a brand with a social conscience, bringing beauty into the world on a daily basis. What’s not to love?
