Ease into autumn temperatures with our heathered Gray shade, a neutral favorite that will add texture to your wardrobe season after season. 

Never underestimate the power of a good gray in your wardrobe. 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. After falling in love with the centuries-old Nehru jacket design, we decided to create our own as a tribute and have given it an Andean twist. With its sleek, versatile silhouette, our Tambo Jacket was designed to meet your need for elegant style in the office, on a mountain top, or when meeting your partner’s parents for the first time. 

Materials:

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. With locally-sourced thread and buttons made from the Ecuadorian Tagua nut, this is a choice you can feel good about. 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.
