OUR STORY

Bela Monde
Bela Monde was sparked by founder Lisa Limer's passion for global culture, but the company adheres to a strict set of values to ensure a thriving world for future generations:

  • A commitment to sustainable and environmentally friendly natural fabrics.
  • Our silk designs are digitally printed, which reduces high chemical water waste by 90% in comparison to standard printing processes.
  • All our products are hand sewn and great attention is paid to every detail. Products that are fashionable, not trendy, and will be treasured in your wardrobe for years to come.
  • Quality over quantity. Our materials are sourced, printed, and sewn in the United States.
  • Fair wages for the skilled seamstresses—artisans in their own right—who craft each Bela Monde piece.

All designs are based on founder Lisa Limer's extensive photographic archive, drawn from visits to over 40 countries on six continents. Bela Monde scarves and wraps are digitally printed in North Carolina and sewn by hand in Rhode Island.
