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.

Rosena Sammi Jewelry

This colorful jewelry line, inspired by the attorney turned designers’ Sri Lankan Tamil background, can add some flair to any outfit. To make these bright accessories even more ideal, some pieces, like the bangles above, feature inspiration words in Sanskrit. Pair these great pieces with Hemma’s black kente blazer to really pop this summer!
