Amazing Fair Trade Store: Raven + Lily

I love finding new socially-responsible businesses to fall in love with. And when those businesses sell products I can fall in love with at the same time, even better.

This is what has happened with Raven + Lily. This site carries all the things women love: clothing, jewelry, paper, scarves, and bath luxuries. The best part is that they’re eco-friendly and socially responsible. Take a look at some of these amazing finds.

1. Ferdoz Wood and Gunmetal Bangles

Can’t you just see these amazing bangles layered all the way up your arm? The Ferdoz Wood and Gunmetal Bangles are made using locally sourced wood and leather by marginalized women in Northern India. All proceeds from these bangles go to fund literacy programs for the women, and their children, in this community.

2. Gete: Black and White Striped Scarf

Is there a limit to how much I can say I love this scarf? It’s so stylishly simple! The Gete scarf is made with locally sourced cotton by Ethopian women who used to be fuel wood laborers.

3. Sadik: Leather Charm Necklace

Yes, this is another major love. The Sadik necklace from melted bullet casings the HIV-positive women in Ethiopia. The proceeds from the sale of this necklace also go to help fund healthcare and literacy programs for these women.

As you can see, every item at Raven + Lily has a story, and does positive good somewhere around the world. I love this business for the positive changes they’re making in the world, and in these womens’ lives. This is definitely a company that shares our values here at Earth Divas!
