Hemma creates fresh, elegant collections using authentic hand-woven Kente, a textile rich in African royal tradition. Kente began to flourish in West Africa in the 17th century and still remains prominent representing social prestige, luxury, and cultural sophistication. Each garment is uniquely handmade from intricately hand-woven Kente imported from Ghana. By incorporating the same techniques used to dress Ghanaian nobility for centuries, Hemma allows each client to exude royalty. By investing in quality pieces that last a lifetime, the lives of Ghanaian school children are also impacted. A percentage of all proceeds will be donated to a West African middle school where the designers instructed classes.

Ghana Flashback - The Beaches

There are so many reasons why one must love Ghana, the beautiful beaches has to be top on the list. Edna and I loved visiting them, Bojo Beach is one of our favorites.
There is never a crowd at these beach since it belongs to a private resort.
The boat ride that you have to take travel there adds to its charm.
The local LaBodi Beach is great on Wednesday evenings when live reggae music is played. This is where Edna and I saw a giant turtle lay its eggs within the sand. It was like a live taping of a National Geographic show!
