Ethical Focus & Policy

Raven + Lily employ over 1,500 women around the world to create their collections. These women are employed at fair trade wages to give them access to a safe job, sustainable income, healthcare, education, and a real chance to break the cycle of poverty. Benefits of their empowerments reach out thousands of children and community members.

As a certified B-Benefit Corporation, Raven + Lily is committed to:

— Employing at risk, impoverished women to improve their livelihood;
— Eco-friendly practices in our sourcing of materials and our design processes;
— Honouring traditional artisan crafts and techniques
providing sustainable fair trade wages;
— Creating exclusive, modern designs that reflect the beauty and culture of the women who made them;
— Donating back to their artisan communities for healthcare and educational needs.

Here is a story from Raven + Lily CEO, Kirsten Dickerson’s, recent trip to India: Ferdoz is one of the artisans employed by Raven + Lily. She has five daughters and has seen firsthand the way women are being respected in her community as a result of their employment.

“Before we used to just sleep, eat, and wait for a husband. Now we are business women and are becoming famous around the world and it feels great.”

The Ethical Fashion Forum awarded Raven + Lily with the 2013 award for Sustainable Brand Leader for Jewellery and they also received the CLASSY Award for Philanthropic Business of the Year in 2012. Raven + Lily was named the Best for the World in Community Impact in 2015.
