Our Maret Poncho is a lightweight all-season poncho made from Ethiopian silk spun by women. The thread is then dyed in small batches using natural materials - the stunning colour of the Slate Maret poncho is created by using iron filings.  Each poncho is unique - the colouring and texture varying depending on the artisan who created it. One size fits all.
