Beach days just got a whole lot more fun with our adorable Awassa kid’s poncho.

Skilled women in Ethiopia used a traditional loom to weave this garment from 100% locally cultivated cotton and hand-dyed it using local plants and herbs. Perfect for kids aged 3-6, it features a protective hood, a comfortable loose fit, and bright orange stripes.

Whether it’s for pool days, the beach, or simply as a cute extra layer, it’s the perfect quick-drying accessory that provides lightweight warmth and coverage from the sun.

Feel good about your purchase knowing its maker is a member of the World Fair Trade Organization which creates respectful, ethical, and sustainable work opportunities for artisans in Ethiopia.

This hooded children’s beach poncho is the perfect cover up after getting out of the ocean or the pool. The hand spun Ethiopian cotton makes it extra soft. The beach poncho will dry very quickly and is compact and easy to pack. This is perfect for children between 3-6 years old.  

100% cotton, cold wash.  60 x 50cm approx
