Just a few weeks ago I went to an event at Raven and Lily which is an ethical clothing and home decor shop. I’ve been in this store several times at the Domain in Austin, TX, and you guys, I’m obsessed with the boho decor, leather handbags, and clothes. What I love about this fair trade fashion, style and home store is that it empowers over 1,500 women artisans in ten countries. You’re not just getting gorgeous pieces of clothing or decor at Raven + Lily, you are helping other women support themselves and create a better life all over the world.
When I went to the Raven and Lily event I was gifted with a gift card and so I did a little shopping and picked out a few things for myself and as gifts for my family. They were having their end of the summer sale and so most everything in the store was 30%-50% off and then there was an additional 20% off the entire purchase. Needless to say, I scored some really cool ethical and fair trade pieces like a leather handbag, weaved basket, candle, shirt, and leather wallets. I can’t wait to show you my shops!
My Ethical Home Decor and Fashion Buys at Raven and Lily
When I went into Raven + Lily, I was immediately drawn to the handbag collection. I wanted a fall handbag and these Raven and Lily designed bags were all gorgeous. It was actually pretty hard to land on which one I wanted, but I ended up with a Navy crossbody bag; I have never owned a navy leather bag before and it screamed fall. I was looking at some smaller leather bags, but let’s be real, I have a three-year-old and I’m still carrying all of the little kid things in my bag so, I need the room.
One of my favorite purchases was this weaved basket that I plan on putting a house-plant in. I’m re-decorating my home office, and my decor style is definitely a mid-century boho mixture, so the basket is perfect. If my office could look exactly like the Raven and Lily store, I would be happy. They have this gorgeous green plant wall that I would copy and paste to my home in seconds if I could keep any plant alive.
I also got three black leather wallet’s for myself and as gifts. They were on clearance for $22 (Originally $48) and then there was an addition 20% off of that price. Needless to say, that’s why I got so many! When Raven and Lily has a sale, they are always really good.
Last, I got a scented candle called Venice that smells like the beach, a grey crop-topped long-sleeve shirt that’s perfect for colder weather and Moroccan/Boho Decor book. In the end, I definitely went over my gift card budget, but I couldn’t help myself. If you are wanting to buy Ethical and Fair Trade fashion and home decor, check them out Raven + Lily in their stores or on-line.
note- I was gifted with these items from Raven and Lily.
