TRANSPARENCY THROUGH OUR SUPPLY CHAIN

We transform stories into timeless pieces, but we don’t do it alone. Our partners share our commitment to do things differently and share our values. Remu Apparel would not be a reality without the people & companies that share our passion. We think it is just fair for you to know exactly where your Remu Apparel garments are coming from and who is manufacturing them - so let us introduce our amazing partners.

Our Partners: Manufacturing 

RAQUEL’S WORKSHOP - MIRANDA, ECUADOR

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

JESSICA GANSINO - CONOCOTO, ECUADOR

Jessica is less talkative than her cousin Anita, however her talent for complex stitchings and her outside-the-box thinking abilities, make her an important part of the team. Her studio is located in her home in Conocoto, Ecuador. She is a passionate mother and a fast learner.

ANITA'S WORKSHOP - CONOCOTO, ECUADOR

The first thing you notice when you meet Anita is the big smile that accompanies her wherever she goes. Her great personality and humor are coupled with her fine-tuned attention for detail. Anita works from her studio in Conocoto, a once-great agricultural zone in the outskirts of Quito.

MARIO LLUMIQUINGA - MIRANDA, ECUADOR

We met Mario through our manufacturing partner Raquel. She told us her brother was a blacksmith and that he could help us with the buttons for our jackets. We are really fond of the community of Miranda and once we saw the opportunity to expand our supply chain and further impact this small community we took it.

Our Partners: Fibers

We aim to only source upcycled or organic materials in order to upset the production of new & polluting materials thus reducing our impact & the amount of waste along our supply chain. We always try to source locally to promote the local economy and minimize our carbon footprint by facilitating transportation. Our fiber and material partners are the best in the business and all of them operate locally and share our same values and principles.



ANDES MATERIAL'S

Andes Materials offers a portfolio of hand made thread, yarn, and fabric made by women and men of the Sanjaloma community of Salasaka-Ecuador.

The revitalization of this complex artisan process is developed in several phases, through which the culture of its protagonists is expressed: respecting nature and its processes, a dialogue of knowledge between generations, and how their ancient textile techniques have a new value thanks to sustainable fashion.
