Jackalo was founded by mother, maker and long-time environmentalist Marianna Sachse.
Marianna was always happy to receive hand-me-downs for her kids, but noticed that they petered out as her son grew bigger. Kids are notoriously rough on their clothes—their pants don’t last a month, let alone an entire school year, without rips in the knees. The waste from these trashed clothes adds up and costs parents unnecessary time and money. Plus, fashion is one of the largest polluting industries in the world.
After years of frustration with the clothing options for her active older son, and a total lack of hand-me-downs for his little brother, Marianna founded Jackalo to bring back old-fashioned quality to kids clothing. Jackalo makes clothes strong enough for active kids that are also gentle on the environment.
Playclothes made better.
