Crafting Clothes, Art and the Wise Woman Tradition with Lucretia Jones

Lucretia grew up in the suburbs of Richmond where she and friends  would spend hours exploring the surrounding woods. Her passion for art making led her to New York in 1999, where she lived until 2005. Somewhere along the way, inundated by the roar of that concrete jungle, her childhood interests were reignited.

House of Lukaya the shop opened December 2006 in Richmond’s historic Shockoe Bottom neighborhood. They offer a unique selection of wearable and wall art, in addition to handcrafted body care, incense and oils. The remainder of their inventory comes from local artisans. Every House of Lukaya product is handcrafted in small batches, ensuring the integrity of each organic and consciously wild-crafted ingredient. Essential oils require enormous amounts of plant material to make a small bottle of oil.
