LEMLEM LAUNCHES HOME COLLECTION
By veronica viayra, May 1st, 2012
Lemlem, the fresh and chic clothing line with an African spirt, has expanded to include a home decor line sold exclusively at lemlem.com. The collection has hand-woven pillowcases and blankets that features bright colors, unexpected details, and bold stripes.
The new home decor line is a natural extension of the women and children’s clothing line that was creatde by philanthropist, supermodel, and actress Liya Kebede in 2007. The brand was inspired by a trip to her native Ethiopia where she visited many traditional weavers who had lost the market for their goods. Kebede wanted to preserve their art form and create job opportunities for these people thus lemlem was born. The pieces are handmade in Ethiopia from natural cotton and perfectly combine tradition with modern touches.
