Crafted from luxuriously textured, 100% natural cotton, the Tabtab Hooded Poncho is made in Ethiopia by local artisans using time-honoured hand-weaving techniques renowned for their intricacy.
Accented with signature lemlem hand-twisted fringing, side-tie closures and a roomy hood, the Tabtab Hooded Poncho would be perfect to take you from the beach to the bar and would add a chic, off-duty touch to your summer ensembles.
Translated from Amharic, the language of Ethiopia, lemlem means ‘bloom’ or ‘flourish’; dedicated to safeguarding the traditional, time-honoured skill of local artisans, lemlem empowers individuals and allows them and their intricate skills to flourish in the production of their pieces.
Committed to expanding job opportunities across Africa, lemlem was founded in 2007 by model and maternal health advocate Liya Kebede. Born in Ethiopa, Kebede created lemlem with a view to provide careers and training to local artisans, while supporting the traditional crafts of the area and using profits to increase the training and presence of midwives in the region.
