July Designer Focus: LemLem



Lemlem, a women's and children's line launched in February 2007, by super model and actress, Liya Kebede, cherishes and celebrates hand-woven fabrics and the art of weaving.


On a visit to her native country, Ethiopia, she saw that traditional weavers no longer had a market to sell their products, which inspired Liya to help maintain their art form and tradition. Lemlem, meaning flourish or bloom in Amharic, is rejuvinating the traditional weaving industry in Ethiopia, by creating job opportunities. All Lemlem pieces are completely hand-made in Ethiopia.

We're excited to carry a beautiful line of hand made fabrics, apparel and accessories that supports an economy.
