Made with love

All Lirika Matoshi pieces are beautiful, but this nature-inspired sweater spotted on Bailee Madison's Instagram particularly caught our eye. All Lirika Matoshi products are hand-knitted by a team of local women workers in Kosovo—meaning each one is  unique and made with love. Lirika Matoshi prioritizes paying their team a fair living wage (that's right, not a minimum wage) and provides them with full benefits. Buy it here, $270.
