One beautiful day two great friends were lucky enough to be bumping along on the back of a game viewing vehicle on a game reserve somewhere in the South Africa. Many business ideas were discussed ( and little game was viewed!), all based on things they loved and things they believed in. And so Pen & Em was born. Pen is a stylist and Em is a banker, two different backgrounds and personalities that come together to create a unique little business.
Pen & Em’s mission is to create quality and easy to wear ponchos of many styles, colour and pattern. Take it for a plane or car trip, throw it in the beach sundowner bag or wear it out to lunch, any time you like really!
We want to supply you with only things we love and wear ourselves (and we are sometimes quite different, so there is something for everyone!). We aim to support local small business and bring you great quality products which make your life easier and make you look fantastic at the same time!
Em has since realised banking and retail don’t mix and has taken time out from both, and so Pen is now running the show, with a little input from Em (sometimes a girl needs a second opinion!).
Made in South Africa, our ponchos are versatile and come in a colour for everyone, there is one for any occasion.
These ponchos are made from a lightweight synthetic knit, similar to a light cardigan, they are machine washable and one size fits all. Our ethos behind this Pen & Em Poncho is that it should be fun and accessible. They come in a handy storage bag so travelling with it is a dream, the bag makes it easy to carry and store and is all pretty and packed up should you want to give one as a gift.
Cashmere Ponchos and Wraps
We realise that cashmere is a must in any well put together lady’s wardrobe. And so we have sourced truly beautiful ponchos and wraps to keep us all extra warm and looking fabulous when we need it. Cashmere is 8 times warmer than wool and is very soft and luxurious. From boardroom to dinner party our cashmere will have you covered.
