Hemma also benefits education in Africa by donating a percentage of each garment purchased to the school where the designers taught in Ghana, West Africa. Learn more about the Hemma Foundation in the May issue of LUCKY Magazine and at the Charities Section of Hemma's official website. You can now donate directly to La Yahoshua!
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.
