We are Kei Tsuzuki and Molly Luethi, two social entrepreneurs with a vision. Back in 2010 when we opened our doors, we knew that we could use our business as a way to impact the lives of immigrants and refugees in our community. With over 30 combined years working in the non-profit sector in women’s economic development and education, we started our commercial venture to show how a business could be sustainable while doing good. This was the seed that started Kei & Molly Textiles, LLC.
Today, our staff consists of trained artisans, immigrants, and refugees from around the world, working together in craft and production, screen-printing each design by hand to service orders from stores nationwide. Through Kei & Molly Textiles, they find a secure job paying good wages, with support in health and education, and opportunities for leadership and personal development. Working together, regardless of our nationality, religion, or spoken language, we are reminded daily how we are connected in our humanity.
