It is no surprise the Nehru jacket design which was created as early as in the 10th century has transcended through history managing to persist and remain relevant.
Since the first time we saw the design, we fell in love with it and as a tribute, we’ve created our own with an Andean twist. The perfect mix between cotton and Andean wool, blend into everlasting comfort. While keeping you warm, the Tambo Coat has a slick design that makes it extremely versatile. We designed it knowing it will become your go-to companion for any occasion.
The Tambo Coat has been built with a breathable yet warm blend of 50% Andean Wool & 50% cotton. The softness of the wool mixed with the structure of the cotton, make an extremely well formed jacket.
We work with seamstresses from rural communities to handcraft each of our pieces, enabling them to become independent through their skills and provide for their families. We pay 7% of the price of each of our products directly to the seamstress that manufactured it.
Additionally, this jacket comes with handcrafted buttons made out of Tagua tree seeds, a native species that grows in the Ecuadorian rainforest. This natural product is widely known as vegetable ivory for its resemblance to animal ivory. Tagua handcrafts are a great option to replace ivory products, by using the seed we are helping to stop elephant hunting.
In 1 year a Tagua tree produces 20 pounds of vegetable ivory, that is equivalent to the amount of ivory a female elephant produces in a lifetime.
