Creative & Design
A life rich with experience, learnings and purpose, has made Lizl the passionate designer she is today. Born out of lack and necessity, Lilly Loompa is a testament to her creativity and resourcefulness. In 2004, she started Lilly Loompa and since then has run different businesses under that label, including jewelry-making and interior decorating. The wife and mother of two daughters, ventured into the recycling business a few years ago when her household suffered a number of financial setbacks. In the course of the last decade, these financial misfortunes demonstrated that the same philosophy of renewal and innovation that informs her design work has an equal application in her home and business life. Lizl is a self-taught designer and initially started designing and making furniture because she couldn’t afford to buy new pieces to furnish her home. She started to scout and source for budget material and quickly realised that most people discard of very usable materials. Lizl is passionate about making a change in her community and together with her husband, she serves as a Director of The Chosen Foundation. With the Abraham’s Sons programme, they facilitate the restoration of men and families, through mentoring and travelling.
