A Scottish clothing brand is closing in on its target to bring some fashion style to the nation’s streets.
Sarah Clyde is the founder of le tee Paris, and has launched a Kickstarter campaign to create her new range of ponchos, to be made in the Hawick, and needs £8000. At present, £5500 has been pledged.
le tee Paris was launched in Paris at the end of last year. Sarah, who lives in Edinburgh, aims is to make this chic style available and affordable to everyone and the clothes are made up of everyday classic staples that can worn to dress up or down, according to the occasion.
Sarah said: ‘le tee would like to say a huge merci beaucoup to everyone who has supported the campaign so far. We really appreciate your help in getting this Scottish project off the ground. We have even had some people ordering from as far afield as the Arab Emirates!
The poncho is the newest addition to the le tee clothing range. It is made from soft 100% Merino wool, available in a variety of eight flattering colours.
Sarah previously told Scottish Field: ‘I was really keen to move some of the manufacturing back here to support the local economy, and the ponchos are as such being produced in Hawick by a local woollen mill. I felt it was the perfect opportunity to marry together classic French design, and the traditional skill and heritage of Scottish weaving and mills.
‘Scotland has such a wealth of knowledge and tradition in woven goods and I thought this could be a wonderful fusion of French classic design and Scottish textiles expertise.’
