Lidia May is a designer label created by American designer and social entrepreneur, May Yang. She incorporated the rich culture and crafts heritage of South Asia into her motifs, creating bags that are instantly recognisable.
Her designs connect the wearer intimately with the person who produced her bag, one piece at a time. The techniques employed are the result of extensive research into the traditional luxury crafts of the region, reinterpreted for a contemporary audience.
Lidia May is conscious, working with raw materials suppliers who are committed to reducing environmental impact, such as leather tanneries developing ecologically neutral tanning techniques.
Lidia May socially supports the Lidia Hope Centre Trust, a non-profit educating 70 students in the slums of Dhaka and teaching marketable vocational skills to unskilled women. The company has pledged a part of its profits to support the Lidia Hope Centre Trust. To check out Linda May, visit:lidiamay.com
