"It all started with a simple leather clutch I made for myself and the lady in the parking structure who wanted to buy it off me," says designer Lili T. "The same happened with a few pieces of jewelry I had made for myself."
The business grew and grew, and Lili now makes beautiful leather bags and jewelry from her studio in the middle of the Mojave desert. She tells us, "I love being swallowed by the solitary desert vastness that opens my mind in all directions and lets me be and work." That is definitely a feeling we can relate to.
If you'd like to visit 29 Palms, Lili's property, the T House is located at the end of a dirt road at the border of Joshua Tree National Park. It's a fabulous light infused space, and great for inspiration.
