LuMu X One Another
LuMu loves brands that empower women and that is why we are proud stockists of ‘One Another’ cushions. Created by Rick and Annette Carter who, after a trip to India working with a non-for-profit organisation ‘Opportunity International’ – where they witnessed first hand the harsh reality of living in poverty, felt they had to do something tangible and by embracing the entrepreneurial spirit of the woman in India, they created and launched their own ethical label combining their background and love of design, photography and fashion. With the use of the traditional artisan techniques of the woman they created a product that not only looks good but does good for the community.
Currently working with various women who have survived life struggles, they provide these woman with fair pay, safe and clean working conditions and the option to work from home should they need to take care of their family. A simple luxury that we take for granted empowers the woman to rise above poverty to dream and build a better life for themselves and their families.
The ‘One Another’ range embraces texture and the unique quality of producing products by hand, and various parts of the pillows are stitched and woven in India, South Africa and Nepal – where woman have been rescued from trafficking in Bangladesh.Whenever you purchase a product from One Another, you’re supporting every person behind the product.
“We know that we aren’t going to change the world but we know that we can change the lives of these woman, one cushion, throw and clutch at a time.” – Rick and Annette Carter
