Lemlem

So I was searching the interwebs for perfect christmas presents and I happened upon the BEST thing ever!

Liya Kebebe is a big role model for me. She shows that two cultures can blend seamlessly. Taken from her website, http://www.lemlem.com/pages/about: "Supermodel / actress and former World Health Organisation's Goodwill Ambassador for Maternal, Newborn and Child Health, Liya Kebede"..."started Lemlem in 2007 as a way to inspire economic independence in her native country and to preserve the art of weaving."
  Here are some of the pieces that I really enjoy:










There are a lot of great handcrafted pieces of clothing and accessories that you should definitely check out that were not shown in this post! *cough* great for Christmas presents!

  3. I love that Liya Kebede's line is fitting for the weather in Ethiopia but also so appropriate for wear around the the world. Lemlem is a gem.
