Supermodel, actress, and former 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
Today, Lemlem, which means to flourish or bloom in Amharic, is thriving. Thank you to those who support this handcrafted collection of women’s and children’s clothing, while helping preserve an ancient art form.
This little Lucy Onesie ($US 70.00), will be perfect for Romy’s summer!
