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.

Hemma in Japan Weekly

Kinue from Japan Weekly caught up with us during the Hemma Trunk show at AvaMaria. This marks our first international newspaper feature... is it a coincidence that our first online order came from Japan?

We love Japanese fashion for the innovation, colors, and mixing and matching of textures. We have our eye on the market and Hemma will be sold there soon!
