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.

Jewelry for the Apocalypse

Delfina Delettrez’s new accessories collection, “My World”, draws its inspiration from the Mayan calendar’s prediction of the world’s rebirth in 2012. With skulls dotted in yellow sapphires and wrapped in lots of gold makes the ominous Mayan prophecy a little less intimidating.
