Wednesday giveaway!

Today's giveaway is from LemLem, an amazing handcrafted clothing collection. When model/actress Liya Kebede discovered that weavers in her native country of Ethiopia were losing their jobs because of declining local demand for their goods, she started LemLem as a way to preserve the ancient art of weaving and help these traditional weavers thrive. (Just look at their amazing dresses and scarves!)

Today LemLem is offering a Hana Pocket Bag ($188), with a bold handwoven stripe and six outside pockets. Isn't it beautiful?

For a chance to win, please visit LemLem and leave a comment below. A winner will be chosen at random tomorrow. Good luck! xo Update: Sammie L. is our lucky winner. Thanks for playing.

Crystle said...

I have never heard of LemLem but will certainly be a supporter in the future. I'm a bit of an international development/foreign news nerd and a fan of trade over aid so I love the idea behind this company.

I would love to use this bag to haul all my stuff to the office each day (book, giant water bottle and snacks). Plus, it would be such a fun pop of color in my cube while I work.

Abigail Leigh said...

So lovely!

Millie said...

Their bold colored stripes and simple siloettes make the clothes look gorgeous and effortless. I am loving their ponchos, but wouldn't mind that bag at all. Please count me in!
