Hi there, 

Le tee Paris is a small independent clothing brand inspired by my time recently living in Paris, seeing the effortless chic that resonates from beautiful French women as they simply go about their everyday lives. I wanted to make this classic style available and affordable to women all over the world, and my clothes are everyday staples that you can dress up or down according to the occasion.

For a long time I’ve been searching for the perfect accessory to go with the collection. I wanted any accessory I made to be versatile, and able to be worn every day with a variety of outfits. It was also really important to me that anything we added should be luxurious and and at an affordable price.

I came across this photo of Brigitte Bardot in her poncho some time ago and realised that this true French icon was wearing the exact type of accessory I wanted to make.

Following my travels le tee is now based back in my home city of Edinburgh, and the poncho has given me the perfect opportunity to marry together classic French design and the traditional skill and heritage of Scottish weaving and textiles.

Hawick in the Scottish Borders is a traditional weaving town where the ponchos are made. I'm really proud to be able to support a local Scottish woolen mill, and hope to continue to spread their expertise and quality across the globe. I’d be delighted if you can be a part of this too.

All the ponchos are woven using traditional methods and finished by hand. They have been designed to perfectly suit all heights and figures.  The wool is 100% Merino, and the seams are overlocked to give a flawless finish across the join, meaning the poncho flows perfectly across the arms.  The feel is extremely soft, and it drapes beautifully over any outfit. It really is the ultimate throw on and go piece.

At the moment we only sell on line which keeps our costs down. For Kickstarter we’ve lowered the price of the Ponchos, so you can own a piece of French inspired Scottish luxury at an affordable price.

The Ponchos are available in a range of eight colours - so treat yourself or a loved one, you won’t be disappointed! I hope you love them as much as I do and would be delighted if you can support us in our growth.

There’s so much we hope to do going forward. For our first season we've been focussed on the UK and Europe, but we would now love to expand further across the globe and build the collection further. I hope this is just the start of a new journey of French design and Scottish manufacturing. Your support now will really make the difference in making this a reality. So come with us, and support a local traditional economy at the same time.

Merci kickstarters, et à bientôt!
