Story Behind This Style: Crafted by women artisans in Kenya from the horn of Ankole Longhorn cattle, a breed native to East Africa. This recycled material is obtained ethically by Raven & Lily's artisans, which is a byproduct of the food industry. Each piece of horn has unique, natural variation in color, making every piece truly one of a kind.
Each season, Raven + Lily creates a lifestyle collection that reflects the beauty and culture of the artisan women who handcraft their exclusive designs. They partner with women artisans and follow fair trade standards that honor these women and their families. As a company that focuses on living thoughtfully and simply, they were inspired by Japanese minimalism for their FW16 Collection. The designs are meant to complement, not distract, from a woman’s inherent beauty and value. Nothing is overstated or complicated and all of the designs are produced with people and the planet in mind. Live thoughtfully.
We’re proud to feature Raven & Lily for their direct support of women entrepreneurs in Kenya. Your purchase of this product directly impacts this artisan community through fair wages and business/skill training.
