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.

Stay on Top of Bazaar Magazine's Trends for 2010 with Hemma
BAZAAR magazine recently posted it's 20 TOP TRENDS FOR 2010 online, and it's number one pick was Mixed Prints ! "...This season anything goes," they wrote, "mix and match your most colorful pieces and let your imagination run free." Posted along side their statement was a How-To picture featuring Dries Van Noten's collection, but I would have rather preferred to see Hemma's daringly chic use of kente patterns. Hemma + this trend = Picture Perfect! What Hemma piece would you stylize for this summer's trend?
