Today we are announcing that we purchased something from LemLem, an artisan-driven collection of women’s, men’s, children’s and home goods made entirely in Africa. Supermodel Liya Kebede was inspired to launch the brand following a trip to her native Ethiopia where she met a group of traditional weavers who no longer had a market for their craft.
We encourage you all to do anything you can to support the Black Lives Matters movement, whether it be a vote, a phone call to elected officials, petitions, protests, donations, purchases and posting messaging from the black community. This needs to continue beyond this week, long after the “trend”.
Help keep this conversation alive so we can all live safely in this country.
