Change The World With Lemlem

From the pages of  Vogue, to Supermodel, Goodwill Ambassador, and Ethiopian native, Liya Kebede started Lemlem as a means to help her country become more economically sustainable by encouraging the crafts of weavers and embroiders – the cultural cornerstones for the region in Africa.tumblr_mmots7dmTz1qk0mano1_1280

Handspun cotton and handsewn embroidery have been a part of Ethiopian culture since ancient times (think Queen of Sheba) and now the world gets a chance to experience the quality and beauty first hand through the women and children’s collections.  Lemlem means “to bloom or flourish”. And they are doing just that.

Here are some of my favorite looks from Lemlem
