Liya Kebede (model and founder of lemlem) by Kava Gorna

Supermodel/actress and maternal health advocate Liya Kebede founded lemlem in 2007. Lemlem, which means “to bloom” or “to flourish” in Amharic, is handmade in Ethiopia from natural cotton. The iconic beach brand is so cute for moms and kids, especially if you have a weakness for coordinated mother-child outfits!
