Travel Diary: Bali

YIREH first started as a small jewelry company. Emily would hand make jewelry to support her humanitarian works abroad. On a trip to Indonesia in 2012 designer Emily met a young girl named Sumi on the island of Nusa Lembongan with a dream of finishing school. Emily asked if she knew how to make anything and the girl brought out dozens of beaded shell necklaces. Emily then asked Sumi to make 100 shell necklaces in exchange for payment of one years tuition of schooling. Sumi happily agreed.

     The following year designer Emily met a seamstress family in Indonesia who needed extra money to support their family. Emily knew she wanted to help them get back on their feet so she drew out her first design (The Pantai Short) and hired different members of the family to help source fabrics, manage pickups, and sew the designs. They received the income they needed and now Emily had to figure out how to sell her designs again. She started out on Etsy and everything sold out almost immediately. This led to the foundation of what YIREH is today, an outlet to use creativity to inspire, encourage, and empower, while also providing fashionable clothing that tells a story.

     Today, we partner with two ethical factories, and still remain in close contact with the first family we worked with. They have moved on to their ultimate dream of starting a driving business, which in our first year of business we helped them purchase their very own vehicle. We at YIREH are excited for what the future holds.
