Fujin No Tomo Magazine was first published in 1908 as Japan’s first magazine created for women. Today Fujin No Tomo is one of Japan’s leading lifestyle and fashion magazines. We just received the March 2011 edition of Fujin No Tomo featuring Hemma and our hearts goes out to not only the people in the region, but their friends and families. Japan was the first market outside of the U.S. to embrace Hemma through online sales and media features and we are so grateful for all of the support. Find out how you can help the victims of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan now through the Red Cross.
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.
