Lily and Laura bracelets have been an enzee treasure for many years. Both a customer and employee favorite, they have a timeless fashion with a variety of colorful options to match your entire wardrobe! Our appreciation of Lily and Laura doesn’t end with the fashion: the brand also happens to come from a very charitable and loving place.
Laura, one of the women behind the Lily and Laura brand, spent a great deal of her life traveling to over thirty countries. She settled in Nepal in 1996 and decided to stay there for the wonderful people and beauty that extend across the country. Eventually, Laura discovered Nepali women’s crocheted bracelets. With a growing passion for fashion and accessories and strong Nepali roots, Lily and Laura was soon created.
All Lily and Laura bracelets come from the loving hands of women artists in the Kathmandu Valley of Nepal. These women custom design and hand crochet each and every bracelet very precisely with Matsuno Glass Beads, the finest in the world. Once the products are completed, Lily and Laura practices fair trade across the business process, and even focus on paying more than fair trade wages to their artisans in Nepal.
By practicing fair trade and supporting local creations, Lily and Laura has greatly improved the quality of life for these women artisans and their families in Nepal. To keep this in perspective, it’s important to note that Nepal is one of the poorest, least developed countries in the world, with roughly one-third of the population living below the poverty line.
To give women and families in third-world countries love, hope, and a sense of stability is an incredible and unique achievement that Lily and Laura was able to create.
It doesn’t end here though – now, it’s your turn to show support. When you shop Lily and Laura, you know your bracelets are coming from a place of care – from the women artisans to the fair-trade business practices.
