Our Mission

Divider

Local + Lejos is a modern home decor company bridging communities near and far. Though we're still a young company, our first years in operation have taught us a valuable lesson: to achieve significant and lasting impact in the developing communities where we work, we can best serve both our customers and our artisans by offering a highly curated selection of contemporary products.

This strategy ensures we're only bringing you the best products, things we know you will love to add to your home, while simultaneously allowing our partners the stability they need to expand operations, train new artisans, and provide a better existence, for today and beyond.

Growing up in a diverse household, I was born with an innate curiosity about other cultures. On my first trip to Iran as a child, I'll never forget being mesmerized by the beautifully woven carpets and handcrafted gold jewelry in the bazaar. Throughout my travels, befriending talented artisans has always been the most rewarding experience.

However, learning about their struggles to make ends meet has been heartbreaking. Local + Lejos is an effort to preserve what makes this world such a beautiful, unique place and help impact the lives of those who craft. I thank you endlessly for your support, and I hope that you are reminded of the help you have given every time you see a L+L piece in your home.

Besos y Abrazos,
