Here at Object Mythology, we love brands just like ours that strive to do good for those less fortunate.

Lemlem was started by Supermodel / actress and World Health Organisation’s Goodwill Ambassador for Maternal, Newborn and Child Health- Liya Kebede.  She discovered that traditional weavers in her native country of Ethiopia were losing their jobs due to a decline in local demand for their goods and wanted to do something about it. Recognizing the beauty, quality and historic significance of their work, Liya started Lemlem in 2007 as a way to inspire economic independence in her native country and to preserve the art of weaving.

I first spotted this dress at the Barney’s Co-op on Madison Avenue and immediately had to have it.  Its lightweight, gauzy feel is perfect for as a cover up at the beach or over a tank dress in the city.

Be sure to check out more of their chic tunics, dresses and accessories available online.
