Fair trade, global artisan goods just became easier for you to find… Founded by friends Lydai and Ali (LYD + ALI = LYDALI), Lydali is an online shop of carefully curated handmade items sourced from around the world. The items – jewelry, bags, accessories, and clothes – are lovely in their own right, but Lydali takes things one step further by connecting you with the artist and artisans behind the items. Each piece is associated with an artisan bio that includes a background and photo. Talk about making a connection with the customer!
We could not have been more excited when Lydali asked us to host a giveaway. The hardest part was choosing the items to be given! They have generously offered one A Piece of Toast reader to win two fabulous pieces – an Addis Color Wrapped Necklace (in your choice of purple or green) and a set of three Wood and Leather Bangles (winner also gets to choose between gold or silver). Both are handmade without looking crafty – the perfect every day pieces that will have you looking stylish while supporting women artisans from Northern India and Ethiopia…
