  • Coming This Spring!

    Some of the items that we'll bring to you this spring.  Some are already on the site, others will appear in mid-March.  Rain Lily's pieces are all ethically handcrafted and represent the best of slow fashion.  

    "Morse Code" bracelets made from semiprecious stones by women rescued from human trafficking, and those at risk of exploitation in South East Asia.  They represent "Strength," "Overcome," and others.

    Earrings made by women artisans in India.  They are given economic empowerment through their work.

    New handloomed scarves coming from Indigo Handloom!  These are sumptuous, soft and beautiful.  And the carbon footprint used to make them is zero!  Here is how they describe the impact of handloom on our environment:

    Making handloom cloth doesn't need to consume even one piece of coal -- just the energy and expertise of the artisan weavers.  If you compare the energy needed to make two shirts -- one with machine-milled cloth, one with handloom, there is enough energy saved to power a small laptop for 8 hours!
