Six-year-old socially responsible biz Raven + Lily has made the leap to a brick-and-mortar store. The Austin-based brand just opened a handsome flagship on the city's east side, full of items handmade by women in Africa, Cambodia, India and the U.S. From gorgeous gold-leaf-wrapped bracelets and necklaces made in Ethiopia to hand-poured soy candles made stateside, the brand seeks to empower women through design partnerships and "sustainable economic opportunities."
