    Changing The World

    One Jacket At A Time

    When you buy Remu products, you are helping us provide fair-paying jobs to communities of women in rural Ecuador. As we bring work to their homes, our seamstresses don't have to choose between motherhood and work, as many other women do in the developing world. Our mission is to empower the artisans that work with us, and their families, so they can break out of the poverty cycle.

    The Tambo Jacket has been built with a warm, yet breathable blend of 50% Andean wool and 50% cotton. The softness of the wool mixed with the structure of the cotton make for a jacket that keeps its shape no matter how many times you pack it in a suitcase. The light shade highlights the woven texture of this jacket, which will expertly coordinate with pretty much any blue button down shirt you pull from your closet.

    Note: Due to our use of natural materials, slight color and texture variation can be expected and is part of what makes our products so special.

    How We Make This Jacket

    Women Of

    The Community Of Miranda

    We work with seamstresses from rural communities of Ecuador to handcraft each of our pieces, enabling them to become independent through their skills and provide for their families.

    Just an hour’s drive from Quito, Raquel Llumiquinga & Sofia Tipan have been manufacturing Remu Apparel jackets since day 1. They became our first manufacturing partners and are essential for our company and our objectives.

    The Fabric

    Sourcing Andean Wool

    The Tambo Jacket has been crafted out of a warm, yet breathable 100% Sheep’s Wool fabric. Wool is way more sustainable than organic cotton given that sheep live in arid land, that don't require vast amount of water nor require the need of monocultures.

    The Buttons

    Tagua, Vegetable Ivory

    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 ivory poaching.

    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.
