Add some sophistication to your wardrobe with our Maret silk poncho in timeless Slate colour tones.

Skilled women in Ethiopia used a traditional loom to weave this garment from 100% locally-cultivated silk and hand-dyed it using iron filings. Each poncho is unique with the colouring and texture varying depending on the artisan who created it.

Whether it’s for every day, a special night out, or travel, it’s the perfect accessory to effortlessly bring an outfit to life while also providing lightweight warmth, comfort, and coverage.

Join us in supporting sustainable work opportunities for artisans in Ethiopia and women affected by obstetric fistula injuries.
