I spotted these beautiful LemLem scarves strolling/shopping down James Street in New Farm today. I had heard about this collection, but they are truly captivating in person.
This is a design house with heart, started by the multi-talented Liya Kebede – supermodel, actress & World Health Organisation Goodwill Ambassador for Maternal, Newborn & Child Health. She started LemLem in 2007 to provide employment for traditional weavers from her homeland Ethiopia after she discovered that they were losing their jobs due to decrease in local demand for their goods.
These are all handmade in Ethiopia in natural cotton. I just love the mix of natural tones with pops of fluoro in their current collection of scarves – and the light material means it can traverse the seasons as a beautiful accessory.
