YJL is an intersection of luxury, fine art, and fortitude, and our mission is to redefine each. A luxury that does disservice to humanity is not a luxury, it’s a lie. If it hasn’t come from the hands of artisans, it’s not fine art, it’s fabricated. If it hasn’t culminated from adversity, it isn’t fortitudinous, it’s flimsy. YJL’s focus is not solely on artistic integrity and opulence, but social justice and humanity. We go over the top for the underdog. Indulge in luxury that uplifts.
