About Us

Welcome to Lumily! Let's explore the remarkable journey that inspired our fair trade mission and discover the meaning behind our name. Our story begins with a global adventure that sparked a vision for positive change. Lumily's founder, Giovanna, set out on a soul-searching quest after realizing that her corporate job wasn't aligned with her true purpose. From the vibrant streets of San Diego to the serene villages of India, Giovanna sought a deeper connection to life and a meaningful way to make a difference.

During her travels, Giovanna encountered remarkable women artisans across the world, each weaving their cultural heritage into exquisite creations. Their dedication to their craft and communities ignited a passion within Giovanna to empower these artisans and share their stories with the world.

Driven by this mission, Giovanna journeyed to Mexico and Guatemala, immersing herself in the rich tapestry of local culture and craftsmanship. In the highlands of Guatemala, she discovered a hidden treasure—a community of women artisans whose intricate beadwork and timeless traditions captured her heart. It was here, amidst the vibrant markets and rolling hills, that Lumily found its roots.

Lumily—a blend of "world" and "family"—symbolizes our belief in the power of unity and support across borders. Through Lumily, we aim to create a global family united in making a positive impact.

With determination and compassion, Giovanna forged deep connections with these artisans, laying the groundwork for Lumily's fair trade mission. Together, they embarked on a journey to create a brand that celebrates the beauty of handmade craftsmanship while championing ethical practices and social impact.

Today, Lumily stands as a beacon of collaboration and compassion. Our collection, crafted with love by over 200 artisans in Guatemala, Mexico, and Thailand, embodies the spirit of #goodfashiongoodkarma. From handwoven textiles to intricately embroidered accessories, each piece tells a story of heritage, resilience, and hope.

As we continue to grow, our commitment to our artisan partners remains steadfast. Through fair wages, sustainable practices, and community support initiatives, we strive to create positive change, one artisan at a time.

We're thrilled to welcome you to Lumily and invite you to join us on this journey of empowerment, connection, and compassion. From our artisan partners to you, thank you for being a part of our Lumily family! ♡
