Lion Heart Girl
There's a certain stigma that comes along with purchasing products from developing countries. A stigma that their products couldn't possibly meet up with our 1st-world standards... I am pleased to share you all that Lion Heart Girl's artisans blow that stigma out of the water. These beautiful hand-crafted goods are made with all the deliberate thought and mastery you could ever hope for.
Lion Heart Girl's mission is to empower and employ local Ecuadorian artisans who create goods using traditional weaving, stitching, and sewing practices. These talented artisans create these goods from inside their communities and in their homes. I just fell in love with this company for what they stand for. I love supporting companies with a mission to address social and economical issues on a global level. There's no better feeling than knowing that your purchases and money is going back to the people who need it the most. I could talk about Lion Heart Girl's artisan collection all day but I think the photos will do more justice.
