Lightly started from a bond between grandmother and child, and relationships have remained at the core of the brand since we started in 2005. As we have evolved, the relationships with our makers, new materials and the travel designer and director Cindy-Lee Davies does to make Lightly designs a reality have become central to the business and a reflection of what is important to us.
Striving to invent authentic, visually tactile work with a considered manufacturing process, we support artisanal producers internationally and undertake ethical limited-edition production by choice.
Over the years, we have seen many makers built workshops in their towns or villages and be able to provide their children with a quality education from our small production. For Cindy-Lee Davies ‘this small difference of opportunity is part-and-parcel with making a high-quality product.’
The latest collection exemplifies Lightly’s global proposition and wide-eyed view of design—from our inspiration to these unique relationships with artisanal producers who have handcrafted items from weaving copper or woollen rugs, casting brass, hand beating copper, inlaying marble, forming ceramics, spinning metal, and more.
