Introducing Lilify x Tejido: New Knit Apparel

Posted on December 7th, 2019 by Lilify

Lilify is beyond delighted to announce the launch of Lilify x Tejido. Handmade with fine fibers, this knit collection introduces a trio of pieces that are simultaneously luxurious and cozy: the Livia scarf, the Carmen duster, and the Vida scarf. Come and see them at our shop, located at 281 Lighthouse Avenue in Monterey.

Lilify's knit collection, made in collaboration with Tejido Textiles, is part of a special fair trade cooperative employing mothers in rural villages. These women are able to work from home so they don’t have to leave their village and can watch their children as they work.

The Livia is a stunning, substantial, heirloom piece. With abstract woven details and black fringe, the Livia can be worn as a scarf, wrap or shawl.

The Carmen is an absolutely elegant addition to any outfit. With an oversized collar and a long length that hits mid-calf, this duster suits well dressed up or down. The Carmen is the cardigan you won’t ever want to take off.

The Vida is a soft, lithe, square scarf that drapes with utter elegance. This neutral piece, with exquisite woven detailing, can be worn as a scarf or shawl.

Happy Thanksgiving.

It's quiet just about everywhere today, but nowhere does it feel more quiet than in places that are public squares that are rarely lacking in bustle. You can tell that a place is truly a public square when it feels entirely wrong when it's at rest like today and it's very rare to find Lighthouse Ave so empty and devoid of emotion. It's just a little too quiet without the personalities that make a place a place. The women (mostly) and men who create the small town magic in a place like the Lighthouse District are here so much that you can think of them as characters on stage at Disneyland playing a version of themselves in their own little booths. They play the version of themselves that provides you with a "third place". They're characters who know your tastes and make you look great. Sometimes they're even that face you seek out when you need a little support or encouragement.

Most of the time when you shop, your time and money is converted into a paper receipt or a line item on a billing statement that you get at the end of the month. When you shop or play in a place like our district, the transaction isn't so simple. Every time you come here to buy a cup of coffee, pick up a gift, or even just to sit down for a while on a park bench by yourself, you're part of the show. You cast votes with your dollars and feet that a place like ours is a public square where everyone can come play whatever version of themselves they feel like playing that day. Perhaps more than ever we need these public squares where people are not reduced to usernames and selfies.

We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and we're thankful for all of you who are a part of our community.
