Beach Ponchos made from Kikoy (african sarongs). 100% cotton, very soft and absorbant and get lovelier as they are worn and washed multiple times! Currenlty one size (82cm from shoulder to hem) which is ideal for older children and adults, and working on smaller sizes. Perfect to throw on after swimming, and even change under for a little modesty on the beach! Clare tells me they all live in them out there and my daughter loves hers!
A friend living in Tanzania wanted to help a local lady who had polio as a child and now unable to walk but a brilliant seamstress. In need of an income to support her family, they have designed these vibrant ponchos made out of Kikoy from their local market. Clare couriered a box of samples to me - and they passed my quality control with flying colours! Profits will be going to Sophie and her family. Please help me support her cause and for more photos follow their instagram page @rangi.ru
Watch this space for smaller sizes coming out before the summer arrives!
Thank you, your order means so much to me and my very small business.
