My shopping list always seem to include: that perfectly well worn pair of jeans…and a terrific smelling candle. Well, leave it to Raven + Lily to help me with the latter. Their Sliver Lake Candle is freshly scented, elegant...and ethical.
[The brilliant company Raven and Lily, was conceived by close friends Kirsten Dickerson and Sophia Lin who both share a love of fashion and ethical design. The socially conscious organization was created as a platform to help alleviate poverty among women and is committed to offering products that are made by hand and follow fair trade standards.]
Stunningly designed, the Silver Lake Candle is a hand-poured, soy wax candle, infused with the lush scents of mango and grapefruit, and beautifully encased in glass with a gold leaf foil bottom.
Created in Los Angeles, California by women who are transitioning out of homelessness. This employment opportunity allows for these talented, dedicated women to continue on their paths to autonomy.
Currently Raven and Lily helps to employ marginalized women in India, Ethiopia, Kenya, Cambodia, Pakistan, and the USA at fair trade wages, thus giving them access to safe jobs, sustainable incomes, health care, education…a chance to break the cycle of poverty for themselves and their families.
