Philosophy

Laura Siegel designs relaxed, effortless pieces for the globally conscious woman.

Our team employs artisans from rural villages all over the world to sustain traditional cultures and crafts. Along with ensuring ethical working conditions and living wages are provided to the skilled artisans, we collaborate with organizations to ensure they receive mentorship and workshops to learn how to maintain practicing their craft, provide for their families, education on wealth management, business practices and more. We firmly believe the hand can produce something beautiful that machines will never be able to, no matter the technology. Thus, we eliminate heavy energy consumption and the resulting pollutants that disperse into the environment of these communities.
