india.WEEK 3

I headed to another town 3 hours away to meet the new designer for Raven + Lily, Courtney. I spent the week introducing her to the artisans there and assisting Courtney with some of her new designs! Can't wait for you to see what she came up with- but you'll have to wait until next Autumn/Winter!

I always love visiting this family. The work of Raven + Lily employs many of the young women in this home. Because of this they will not have to get married early and can focus on education before they become wives. Look for the Kantha stitch scarf collection that they are making for Raven + Lily this season!

We also had the privilege of celebrating Bakra Eid with one of the families. I've never experienced anything like it! Almost every home kills an ox or a goat so the entire town is covered in ox skulls, skin, and blood. Talk about a vegetarian nightmare! But the chance to celebrate this important holiday with these dear friends that I have worked with since 2008 was so memorable.
