lemlem: handwoven clothing

I'm so glad Carrie re-introduced me to Lemlem, a collection of handwoven clothing made by artisans in Ethiopia. The pieces are pretty and vibrant, and the creation process is impressive. I also love the story behind it and that it supports a good cause.

They also have a line at Jcrew. The tunic above is hands down my favorite piece, it looks so breezy and versatile. See Carrie rocking her's here.

Alli - this is such a great post - and not just because you mentioned me (although that is super thoughtful and thank you!) - I am such a fan of Lemlem. I have been thinking non-stop about Liya Kebede and the artisans she has created new livelihood for. The garments are beautiful and it's so nice to own something with meaning that has enriched the life of someone else.

So glad you featured the brand too!! Love your pictures by the way - you have mastered the ability to lay things out in a very professional and soft looking way. Me? not so much. :)

oh and ps - there is no way the Chef would have gone to that thing (or even that I would have gone to it) had he known what it was. It literally was like getting washed into a sea of denim, dresses and bodies!!

I had been thinking a lot about what you wrote yesterday so it was confirmation to know I wasn't alone here. I'm not going to let my blog (or any "stuff") run my life. It's just not wise or healthy. :):)
