Founded in 2007 by the Supermodel/actress and maternal health advocate Liya Kebede. Meaning “to bloom” or “to flourish” in Amharic, lemlem is handmade in Ethiopia from natural cotton and rooted in tradition, but woven with a modern touch. Lemlem provides another voice for African causes as well as a beautiful embodiment of its traditions and culture. Lemlem supports the non-profit organization, The Liya Kebede Foundation, and its work to address the top health concern of women in Africa – access to life-saving maternity care. 5 % of all sales made on their website go to the lemlem Foundation. The brand's inspiration arose during a trip to her native Ethiopia and it aims to add a sense of diversity to the clothing market while fueling prosperity in another.
