Lemlem is a company that makes exquisitely designed textiles
that are then made into things like shirts, scarves, and home goods.
It was started by supermodel Liya Kebede, in an attempt to better lives of the people in her home country, Ethiopia.
Her company preserves the art of detailed embroidery while offering job opportunities to citizens.
This book acts as a gift to those who donate to and invest in Lemlem. It informs them what they are
generously giving to, while showing them the beautiful process that is kept alive by the artisans.
The handmade cover mimics the primitive and stunning process used to make the textiles,
while the inside design represents the modern fashions that the hand embroiderers create.
