Páramo will welcome the Spring/ Summer 2018 season with innovative developments. The ethical outdoor manufacturer is introducing their first ultra light windproof, extending further the versatility of the Ostro and Alize Fleece/ Windproof combos, ideal protection for an unpredictable climate – and, like all Páramo weatherproofs, Detox-friendly and PFC-free.

Páramo is partnered with chemical recycler JEPlan, moving towards closing the production loop across all products.

Over 80% of Páramo production is by the charitable Miquelina Foundation, a social enterprise that empowers vulnerable women in Bogotá, Colombia, now a full member of the World Fair Trade Organisation. All this production is guaranteed Fair Trade.
