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.

Victoria's Got A Secret

Buying used and refurbished goods can be intelligent on environmental and economic levels, buying used (and dirty!) underwear may not be so smart. Victoria Secret was tested by secret shoppers who dirtied their underwear and lingerie items and then returned them to the store. The store simply put the items back on the shelf! With Hemma's handmade and handwoven production techniques, each piece being completely one of a kind, you won't have to worry about any products being... soiled.

Do you think it's correct of large chains like Victoria's to resell dirtied items, even if they are recycling?
