About this project

Next print issue - The Outdoor Issue!! Peek inside it here

At luri & wilma we are more than a blog or a magazine, we are a way of life. Vintage, handmade and eco-friendly encompass so much more than just fashion and beauty, and that's where our food, DIY and smart lady features come in.

We profile and support eco-friendly businesses, especially those run by women, who have innovative ideas for recycling and repurposing, sustainability or producing quality handmade products. Our models are never airbrushed because we support a healthy, realistic confident woman.

For ladies as hellbent on managing a smashing career as they are about baking pretty cupcakes, luri & wilma is here for you.

We’ve published 7 issues online and this spring, we came out with our first printed issue. This first edition was more of a test and we created a magazine that you can flip through again and again. And now we want more!

We use a local printer so that our money goes back into the city we create it in and print on recycled paper. But those overhead costs are not small and that’s why we are asking you to support us. With this money, we will convert luri & wilma into a quarterly printed magazine with an additional 2 online-only versions. Check out our latest ones here. 

You’ll notice in the rewards that your options include more than just our magazine. We’ve teamed up with some amazing women who have designed special luri & wilma green things. So by supporting us, you’re also supporting all-natural, handmade products and the livelihood of print magazines.

Risks and challenges

Some say print is dead, but we don't believe that to be true! Yes, there are risks involved with any print publication. But, we've aimed small and have a great online presence. We have a smart lady business plan and are able to fall back on our online only presence should this project not become fully funded. No matter what - luri & wilma is a brand that will be here for years and years to come online & in print as well.
