Raven + Lily believes that empowering women will change the world.

Today, the brand helps to employ more than 1,500  artisan women around the world, providing them with a fair trade wage and access to a safe job, sustainable income, healthcare, and other tools they need to thrive. Additionally, every purchase of a Raven  + Lily product helps fund microloans to female entrepreneurs in our partnership communities.

THE RAVEN + LILY STORY from Raven + Lily on Vimeo.

Raven + Lily was founded initially as a non-profit in 2008 through the volunteer efforts of several Los Angeles based designers. In 2011 the company moved into the for-profit business model and is now based in Austin, Texas. Kirsten Dickerson and Sophia Lin were the original founders who partnered with local designers that wanted to give back to women worldwide.

Raven + Lily believes in empowering women. When women are empowered to earn an income, they reinvest 90% of their income back into health, education, food, children, family, and the community.  Our partners set the price we pay, ensuring a livable wage. This empowers the 1500+ women employed by our work to break the cycle of poverty through equitable trade and open communication. We research the source of our materials, down to the button in order to understand how our production cycle impacts people and the planet at every stage. By using recycled or repurposed materials, we stop the waste that typically accompanies the industry.
