My mom's college roommate is an amazing woman. We met up for dinner a few months back and she told me the entire story of her new business, Lily Claire. It all started with a simple bag from a retail store in The States and a trip she took to India. When she came back, people kept asking her about her bag EVERYWHERE she went, it was unavoidable. That is when she realized the Lord was leading her to start a non-profit business to make this bag and help the girls in the sew shop she had visited in India. It's a simple style bag, a bag that you could buy from Banana Republic, but now you can buy it from Lily Claire and you will be supporting a bigger cause, a larger mission. All profits from this bag are donated to the non-profit selected for that season. Currently Lily Claire is partnered with Emily's Place, a transformational housing ministry that strives to break the cycle of domestic violence.
Not only are we moved by Lily Claire's story and mission, we LOVE their bags. They are great everyday bags and the perfect size.
Check out their website to read more about their story and buy your own bag for you or for someone special this holiday season!!!
