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.

Support Black Fashion! Hemma on Coco & Creme

Hemma is dedicated to giving back to the school that taught us so much about the rich royal history of Ghana while my partner and I volunteered as teachers. This Coco & Creme article highlights our philanthropic work to help provide support & scholarships to children unable to afford school. You can donate to La Yahoushua Junior Secondary School today by visiting our website.

Shop Hemma at our New York City locations or online & shop for a cause. A percentage of your purchase goes directly to help the educational system in Ghana.
