Handiwork With Heart.

Founded by friends and "kindred spirits" Lydia Harter and Ali Price, the online shop Lydali stocks high-quality, handmade goods from a carefully curated panel of artisans and craftspeople around the globe. As soon as I saw the site, I knew I had to share it with you - the best part is, purchases support a wide range of worthy causes, with emphases on healthcare, wage fairness, and women's empowerment. For instance, these color-wrapped necklaces were made by women with HIV in Ethiopia - and the metal comes from old bullet casings. (Read more about Lydali's producers, here.) 

Oh, and did I mention the products are gorgeous? Below are a few of my favorites (scroll down for more information about what they are and where they come from).


Clockwise from top: Addis Color Wrapped Necklace (made in Ethiopia), $48; Banana Bark and Fabric Bangles, (set of 3, made in Tanzania), $48; Blue Agate Drusy Ring, (made in South Africa), $42; Striped Clutches, (made in Guatemala), $36; Green Gradient Dress, (made in Ghana), $178.

Shop more at Lydali, here. Have a wonderful weekend, everyone - and stay cool!

  2. I am really loving the wrapped necklaces - I am sure that my sister would love one. There is something to say about turning the ugly (bullet casings) into the beautiful (jewelry).
