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.

Magical Patters

NYMag has listed some of the top trends they have been spotting in the spring fashion shows and those bright and bold patterns we love at Hemma are taking over many of the catwalks. Versace and Diane von Furstenberg are only two of the top designers we see mix-matching prints and colors. Who else is pulling out the patterns this season?
