When the coolest girls on the “block” tell you that they love Credo…we have to tell them that we love them back. Sisters Hopie and Lily Stockman started with a passion and turned it into a business that inspires creativity and community and definitely makes the world a more beautiful place to live.
If you’ve never heard of the Block Shop girls, be prepared to feast your eyes on beautiful handmade textiles from a team of artists and craftspeople, all rooted in best practices, helping others and bringing joy to everyone they meet. We want everything they’ve created…literally.
“We wanted to create extraordinary, handmade textiles while honoring traditions, investing in the community’s wellbeing and creating a beautiful world that goes well beyond just the products.”
Q: How do your values translate into a business that is socially responsible and why is that important to you?
A: We wanted to invest in the communities we worked with in India — beyond the cash flow from our production. Today, we are proud to invest 5% of our profits in semiannual health camps for our textile artists and their families – bringing medical and dental care from Jaipur to do checkups and fill prescriptions.
Q: Your skin (both of yours) is glowing. What are your favorite Credo secrets/routines?
A: While we're pretty low-key about products, we love everything in the Credo candy store. Here are the night and day products we are obsessed with.
Thank you, Hopie & Lily. We are thrilled to count you among our clean beauty fans…and trust us, the obsession is mutual.
Clean beauty meets all things beautiful and these girls are the epitome of both. Follow them @blockshoptextiles, visit their website and try to not fill your cart. And while you’re there…check out their skin.
