Lumily is an ethical brand founded by Giovanna, that focuses on creating social change one fair trade item at a time. We partner with small scale artisans in Guatemala, Mexico, and Thailand to design a bold collection that represents sustainability, relationships and hope. We believe in the importance of ethical practices in all phases of our business, from sourcing, to production, through sales.
The name ‘Lumily’ comes from a deeply held belief that the world represents one family. “Lum” means world in Tzotzil, a dialect of Mayan language and “ily” comes from family. When we support others, regardless of who they are and where they live, we support our global family. Thank you for being part of our family! One world... one family... Lumily.
Today Lumily partners with over 75 female artisans in three countries: Mexico, Guatemala, and Thailand. The company has expanded since its humble beginnings yet our mission remains the same: to create social change through handmade artisan products. We pride ourselves on having followed fair trade guidelines from the very beginning, creating reliable, long term relationships with each artisan and their families, while working with a transparent business model.
Aside from creating change through our products, we aim to provide our artisan groups with as much assistance as possible. Lumily provides the funds for 14 children in Guatemala to go to school, we have an emergency fund set aside for all artisans, and we host fundraisers to provide extra support for the artisans and their families.
