Ashira and Andy first met in the small and magical Cooperstown, New York. Andy had just left New York City and was wwoof-ing (willing worker on organic farms) at Origins Cafe, a farm-to-table foodtruck + cafe. Ashira was living part time in India, Nepal and the US working with NGO STOP (Stop Trafficking and Oppression of People) and for a Tibetan Buddhist Meditation Center. They quickly fell in love and decided to start a business. Inspired by their love for the world + their desire to create change, they started Jewel & Lotus.
“Working with Ashira and Andy has been amazing. They are a lovely couple and are so dedicated to bring sustainable change to the world. I really admire their work ethics and enthusiasm towards collaborative work. They are genuinely nice people and we hope the association between Jewel & Lotus and Brown Boy grows and we collectively bring sustainable apparel mainstream.”
“This is so awesome!! Thank you so much for doing this! And THANK YOU for creating this platform and making it possible for vendors like us to have a space to grow. Wishing us all so much success so we can take down greedy capitalism ;)”
“Jewel and Lotus is an amazing Ethical Marketplace. The items are so beautiful and I love having somewhere to shop that I can trust. I want to get everything on this site! The founders have a lot of integrity and genuine investment in making the world a better place as well as exquisite taste. I also love selling my handmade items on Jewel and Lotus and have been very happy with the results. Thank you Jewel and Lotus!”
“I love the vision behind the Jewel and Lotus global community & ethical marketplace, and I feel so fortunate to have met the owners of the company personally. Andy and Ashira are some of the coolest changemakers I know, and their love and passion for promoting global prosperity and sustainability for our planet is truly genuine. As a previous designer in the mass-market fashion industry, I know how important it is to be heading in this direction of ethical fashion! I love everything J&L and their vendors are doing and I can’t wait to see what else is to come!”

“Jewel and Lotus is a fantastic socially conscious and ethical marketplace full of lots of talented people. I was fortunate enough to discover the site through Social Media a few years ago and knew that I had to be a part of it. Andy and Ashira welcomed me as one of the founding artisans and it’s been an incredible journey experiencing their growth and passion along the way. They were both instrumental in setting up the foundation for my shop’s success and giving personal attention when needed. They have not only been amazing business partners but great friends as well. I look forward to both observing and partaking in their future endeavors as they strive to make the world a better place.”
