With a wish to preserve the art of weaving and a desire to inspire economic independence in her native country Ethiopia, supermodel and actress Liya Kebede launched Lemlem.
A line of hand-woven apparel and accessories designed to increase demand for locally made goods in Africa.
Everything is so original and really different from anything else in the shops. The soft fabrics, great color combinations, heirloom quality and beautiful silhouettes.
Liya works with a group of artisans in Addis Ababa who craft embroidered patterns for each soft, hand-spun piece, giving Lemlem clothing a breezy look. Decorated with delicate geometric patterns, cheerful stripes and the fine candy-colored embroidery on each piece makes them the perfect addition to your summer wardrobe.
One more brand where I am slowly growing a little collection in my wardrobe. Timeless, different and something that you do not see everywhere.
LemLem is available here, including a few sales deals. Pieces usually sell out really quickly, so better hurry.
