Laurence Tavernier History of the Poncho
Laurence Tavernieris' iconic product is its poncho and a firm favourite item in the Amazing Grace Boutique. Famed for its 100% luxury wool, the Poncho is now in its 20th year and remains as successful as ever. Originating from France in 1987, the designer Laurence Tavernier has created not just the poncho but a brand of luxurious lounge and nightwear that can be worn crossing from nightwear to day wear. Its versatile enough to wear over a negligee or worn with day wear over a top and a pair of jeans. To wear the soft and elegant poncho is comfort and style all at the same time. It’s made to be useful and beautiful!
Using only the best materials Laurence Tavernier sources the finest wool which is usually the fleece taken from younger sheep as it consists of fiber that has not been cut. It has a natural, tapered end that gives it a softer feel. The best quality of wool also comes from the shoulders and sides of the sheep and this is what is used for clothing. It’s about using only the finest wools and manufacturing techniques to make the iconic poncho.
