Elbi has teamed up with Liya Kebede’s lemlem to offer this special piece which is part of a limited edition capsule collection from two iconic brands - Pierre Hardy and lemlem 🙌.
The collaboration between the two designer friends weaves signature elements from both labels and transforms them into something entirely anew and distinctly eye-catching in its burst of yellow 💛.
The Liya Fringe Clutch is adorned with classic lemlem stripes in a cotton fabric that is hand-woven by artisans in Ethiopia 🇪🇹, and combined with Pierre Hardy’s classic sensibility of form and artisanal flair.
The bag features suede trim and fringe, interior leather lining and a top zip 🔥.
PIERRE HARDY x LEMLEM, THE BEAUTIFUL FRIENDSHIP
Between Liya Kebede and Pierre Hardy, there is a long term complicity. Their collaboration was obvious : natural, sincere, instinctive.
For this micro-collection, Pierre Hardy and Liya Kebede have created a pair of sandals, a pair of Slider sneakers, a bag and a pouch, all available in the same woven fabric by Lemlem, the ethical brand Liya founded ten years ago.
LEMLEM, A STORY OF AUTHENTICITY
The hand crafted materials used in this collection come from Ethiopia, Liya’s native homeland. They are conceived within the tradition of local craftsman :
Created in 2007 by Liya Kebede, Lemlem is the leader fashion brand made in Africa, with its collections for men, women and children. Imprinted by a human and ethical philosophy, Lemlem was created for elevating artisanship and expanding production and job
The Lemlem creations are marked with history and authenticity. They are like Liya : natural, vibrant, modern.
By employing traditional weavers, we're trying to break their cycle of poverty, at the same time preserving the art of weaving while creating modern, casual, comfortable stuff that we really want to wear"- Liya Kebede

In 2015, world leaders agreed to 17 goals for a better world by 2030. These goals have the power to end poverty, fight inequality and support a better environment for animals above land and below water. Guided by the goals, it is now up to all of us, governments, businesses, civil society and the general public to work together to build a better future for everyone.
This is why Elbi is proud to support the Global Goals. All of our causes will be aligned to the goals giving our users an insight into how they're making a difference with their donations.
Our co-founder Natalia Vodianova said "The Global Goals are the things that bind us all together and connect us both as humans and the environment. I am proud we are supporting them and look forward to contributing to the goals ambitions"

Earn a Coin from every donation you make - on a charity video campaign, on other people’s “reactions”, and by creating “reaction” videos yourself to inspire others to donate.
The challenge in ElbiDrop is to browse the app to find new video campaigns and reactions to watch and support, and to make reaction videos of your own. A push message starts the 24 hour ElbiDrop. A Leaderboard ranks those with the most LoveCoins. When the stopwatch runs out, the person with the most LoveCoins wins the item!
On January the 31st the Elbi app was featured as App of the Day in the US App Store! It has been humbling to see how our charities have benefited from this fantastic exposure - all of them reached above and beyond their funding goals with some of them reaching as high as 10 times the amounts they had hoped for. The Diabetic Research Institute raised 20 times (2691 loves) their campaign goal was to support researchers in finding a biological cure for diabetes.

In the humdrum of our busy lives, it’s easy to forget what’s truly important.If we all hit pause during our morning commutes and looked around for a brief moment, chances are we would open our eyes to people everywhere who need help. With a new app Elbi, helping others is easy, rewarding and fun.
The same way technology has forever changed the way we order food, call cabs and make restaurant reservations, the team behind Elbi aim to use modern technology to remove barriers that exist in charitable giving. All the time-consuming and mundane parts of donating: finding legitimate charities worldwide, registering and account, selecting payment options, understanding where your money goes - are all taken care of.
What’s left then? Like most social networks these days, Elbi presents various charitable causes in the form of short videos that you can swipe through left and right. You get to hear directly from people who work in the charity or those affected by the problems those charities are trying to solve: Mamie from Congo who needs school supplies in order to go to school, Ceyda from the UK who has cerebral palsy and needs a special joystick in order to use a computer, or Jessie the dog who was recently rewarded a home thanks to Elbi’s support of the National Animal Welfare Trust.
Once a story affects you - and we promise, it won’t take long - simply touch the heart-shaped icon at the bottom of the page to donate. Alternatively, you can advance the cause by recording a video response, or putting some stickers and personal messages on existing videos and sharing them with your friends.
Your contribution also opens up another type of reward. Each donated dollar converts to a LoveCoin, which you can use in the shop to get exclusive goods in the ‘LoveShop’ from the likes of Fendi, Beats by Dre, H&M Conscious, Givenchy, and others.
Elbi changes the game in charitable donations by channeling the energy of small, everyday actions towards causes for the greater good. Swapping a few minutes of scrolling through social media and the cost of a small coffee cup to instead spending a few minutes on Elbi, collectively, might just be what it takes to make a change in the world.
