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 Wool Overshirt has been built with a warm, yet breathable 100% wool fabric. The softness of the wool and impecable tailoring make for a jacket that keeps its shape no matter how many times you pack it in a suitcase. You can easily dress it down with a t-shirt and jeans, or dress it up with a button-down and chinos.

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 Overshirt

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 a huge inspiration to all of us and for our company.

The Fabric

100% Sheep's 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.
