Story behind the product:
 The journals are made by women artisans at the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains in Northern India. The women transform cotton and paper once discarded and seen as waste into something purposeful and beautiful. Military tents, denim jeans, newspapers, and cotton rags now find new purpose as the women create paper products from these recycled remnants.

How does it benefit at-risk women?
The artisan women find new meaning through their work. They were once marginalized because of their gender and poverty and now find passion in their art and hope for their future.

 

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 women’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.
