 I love lemlem, a line of clothes for women, babies, girls and accessories created by Supermodel / actress and World Health Organization's Goodwill Ambassador for Maternal, Newborn and Child Health, Liya Kebede. 
This is a blurb from the site:


n. 1) hand made in Ethiopia from natural cotton.
v. 2) [Amharic] bloom, flourish.
3) [history] Since ancient times in the land of the Queen of Sheba, the Ethiopian people have adorned themselves in beautiful hand woven and hand embroidered clothing. The hand spinning of cotton and intricate embroidery was the work of women while the hand weaving was done mainly by men. It is our wish to bring to you an incredible handwork and help preserve this ancient art form by creating opportunities for the Artisans.

J.Crew is carrying lemlem scarves, wraps a tunic and the beautiful Lucy Patio Dress...see it above!
