Lion Heart Co. works with a collective of artisans located in the mountain region of Ecuador. Artisans are enabled to create a living for themselves and their families by sharing their beautiful goods with the rest of the world. This passion, along with the growing need for sustainable products in today's global marketplace, helped to create what is today Lion Heart Co.
Strong, empowered, bad-ass ladies.
The mother-earth loving production process is something that Lion Heart is proud to share with the world. We wanted to translate the strength and power of the villagers who build their livelihoods from their art, throughout the brand symbol. The Lionheart logo communicates the synonymous relationship between delicate, feminine, artisans and highly skilled, important, leading ladies.
