Ring by ysl, scarf by lemlem, knitted cardi by jv selection .

I purchased both the scarf and the knit in Byron Bay . What I love about the scarf is the story behind it;
Liya Kebede, supermodel and ambassador, discovered a decline in local demand for the traditional weaving goods of her native country Ethiopia . To inspire economic independence in her native country Liya established lemlem in 2007, effectively preserving the art of weaving . This highlighted the historic significance and recognised the beauty and quality of their work .

Will definitely be purchasing some more of her pieces!
