Happy new week, my friends! Are you ready to get going with another inspired week? Today I thought I’d introduce you to a fantastic clothing label, lemlem. If you haven’t yet heard of lemlem, here’s a little background info.
“Supermodel / actress and World Health Organisation’s Goodwill Ambassador for Maternal, Newborn and Child Health, Liya Kebede discovered that traditional weavers in her native country of Ethiopia were losing their jobs due to a decline in local demand for their goods and wanted to do something about it. Recognizing the beauty, quality and historic significance of their work, Liya started Lemlem in 2007 as a way to inspire economic independence in her native country and to preserve the art of weaving.”
The lemlem collection is handmade in Ethiopia from natural cotton. The colours and handwoven designs are incredibly beautiful. Simple and yet effective, all you need is one piece to liven up your look. Lemlem is stocked locally by Merchants on Long.
