There are oodles of adorable children's clothing lines out there -- whatever your taste, you can certainly find a range of clothes to suit you and your child. However, what if, in addition to being adorable, what if the clothing with which you dress your little one was also made from natural materials and made a difference in the lives of those in needs? That's exactly what you get with LemLem!

LemLem Fall 2008


The line was launched in February by Liya Kebede, who, in addition to being an actress, model, UN Ambassador, and mother of two. The world lemlem means "to bloom or to flourish" in Amharic, and the clothing is inspired by the beautiful hand woven and hand embroidered clothing created by the Ethiopian people.

LemLem seeks to bring the ancient art of this handiwork to the world while creating opportunities for the artisans. LemLem is available in Barneys New York, Calypso, Scoop, and elsewhere.
