Lemlem, meaning "to bloom" in Amharic, was started by supermodel Liya Kebede as a way of providing Ethiopian weavers with economic independence. Each piece is designed in New York and made in Ethiopia using traditional artisanal weaving practices. The result is a vibrant collection of delicately handcrafted summer staple pieces.
