LemLem

28 Mar

I found these scarves by LemLem today. They are handmade by traditional weavers in Ethiopia.

Supermodel, mother and founder, Liya Kebede, is from Ethiopia. “She 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.”

Rubyassata always supports handmade goods, in the US or elsewhere.

p.s.- I really want that navy one. . .
