Here's the thing, there are the people who talk about helping others. And then there are the people who actually do. Because the talking part is easy and the doing part is harder.
When it comes to the new modern tribe, Raven & Lily sets the bar high for others. This brand makes beautiful clothes and jewelry by employing marginalized women in India, Ethiopia, Kenya, Cambodia, Pakistan, and the USA at fair trade wages, giving them access to safe jobs and a real chance to to break the cycle of poverty for themselves and their families.
I was lucky enough to meet the Raven & Lily girls a couple of years ago when they shot their catalogue at my little Marrakesh hotel, Peacock Pavilions. And then I wore a beautiful 100 year old dress and their jewels here for their Christmas campaign. More recently, I sourced some goodies from my shop (at cost) for the shoot of their Fall catalogue - carpets, blankets, poufs, cushions & more.
The new Raven & Lily collection is filled with very special jewelry, as well as hand embroidered & hand dyed fashion. So impressive. And I love seeing my Moroccan goodies mixed in.
