Our purpose

“Each product has a tale, a sense of place and a spirit woven into it”

Phemke’s purpose is to make people aware of the beauty of cultures around the world and appreciate craftsmanship with respect for people and environment. 

Our Story

The Phemke brand was launched by Femke Speelman in 2016. From the very beginning Femke's vision was clear; to create a fashion line that was ethically made, from only the highest quality natural materials, and at the heart of it all, she wanted to empower women, local communities and honor artisanal craftsmanship in Madagascar.
