{eco brand} pippin's picks: raven + lily

Monday, March 7, 2016

i am pretty fond of the palazzo pant {and if you add stripes, then i think you might actually see little hearts floating over my head, like the ones that used to form a halo around lucy's head when she was anywhere near her sweet babboo of the peanuts gang}, however i am over the moon for a brand that empowers women + helps lift them out of poverty by providing sustainable solutions through meaningful work. raven + lily is an ethical fashion label created by kirsten dickerson, a woman with a heart for social justice + fashion who was motivated by the belief "that every person is valuable + uniquely created."*

r+l currently helps to employ over 1,500 marginalized women across the globe {including the usa, ethiopia, kenya, cambodia + india} at fair trade wages to give them access to a safe job, steady income, health care, education, and a real chance to break the cycle of poverty for themselves and their families. 

raven + lily is committed to providing beautiful and unique modern minimalist products that are made by hand, follow fair trade standards, and honor an eco-friendly commitment. over the years r+l has expanded to include lots of goodies including womens' apparel + home goods. dickerson + her team have created a whole universe of beautiful, handmade products for green hearts. visit their exquisite world where all women are inspired to reach their full potential!
