Our philosophy

A family
adventure,

Poncho gallery is the story of 2 sisters,
forever bound by an invisible thread… of
cashmere.

Poncho Gallery is the story of 2 sisters, inseparable as if linked by an invisible thread… a cashmere ply. Of parents who give them an appetite for travel, but also a spirit of entrepreneurship. At a very early stage, Sophie and Lole ventured off the beaten track and set off to explore the world. From the United States they brought back a certain understanding of fashion - casual, comfortable and contemporary.

From Madagascar, India and Africa they brought memories of shimmering fabrics and beautiful themes. And on every journey they took, they were on the lookout. For inspiration, beauty, sophistication. And that essential accessory that they could carry with them wherever they went. And because it didn't exist, they decided to create it.

Upon returning to Paris, they launched their famous classic cashmere poncho. It quickly became their iconic creation, the one with which they

would make a name for themselves. However, initially the response from those around them was mixed: "A poncho, me? Never!". However, the strong-willed pair were not dissuaded.

In 2010, they created Poncho Gallery, a unique brand offering cashmere ponchos and cloaks. Keen observers, the 2 sisters were not mistaken, as the sophisticated and redesigned poncho is utterly in keeping with the times.

It can be seen resting on the shoulders of the stars and on the high street. Today those close to Lole and Sophie are complete fans, and it is more a case of: "Never without my poncho!".

The Poncho Gallery adventure represents the spirit of family entrepreneurship - for the confidence that this brings and the joy of working together on a project that never ceases to bring you closer together.

Cashmere know-how

A prestigious and high quality italian
cashmere thread

Our production site in Mauritius,
works exclusively with
prestigious italian
cashmere thread.

This thread ensures rare quality, softness, and longevity of our garments.

Our cashmere comes from the goats of Mongolia which are found grazing above 4000 meters; at this high altitude, temperatures can drop to -40°C and to beat the bite of the cold, goats grow a unique winter coat of fine but exceptionally warm natural fiber. The fiber is collected in spring, cleaned, and the best quality material is selected. 

It then travels to Italy, where it is tinted, carded, and transformed into cashmere thread. This is a long process that requires a lot of expertise and ancient know how, and care.

cashmere garment is woven on hand-led

Our maintenance tips

My cashmere
is precious

Take care of it.

 

Cashmere is a noble and fragile material that must be cared
for with special attention.When it is new, it may pill a little.
To avoid this, regular washing is recommended after the garment
has been worn 2-3 times. 

Cashmere loves water. Water is the secret to your cashmere’s beauty and softness. We recommend you wash your cashmere in the washing machine because of the consistent water flow, on delicatehand wash, in cold water and a gentle spin.
You can also wash it by hand. Dry flat and use a warm iron.

Do not put on a hanger but simply fold and beware of moths.
They particularly like cashmere, so you might want to use cedar-wood blocks.
Care products are available on our website and in our stores.
