made from Recycled Bottles

Why do we recycle plastic bottles?

It's not news we have excess single use plastic in the world. We've chosen to recycle this waste to create our fabric, rather than using oil (like conventional polyester). We've saving plastics from landfill, reducing our dependence on non renewables, plus saving energy. Creating a high performance, technical fabric with less impact.

To recycle bottles into fabric, after collection, they're sterilised, melted and extruded into a yarn, woven into a fabric and then cut and sewn into a garment, just like a regular fabric. The end result is a premium, high performance fabric that you couldn't even tell the difference.

WHY IS OUR ACTIVEWEAR SO GOOD?

Sustainable, Comfortable and Recycled

We've all had a pair of leggings that have let us down; they weren't squat proof, they weren't high waisted, they had no pockets, or perhaps they weren't sustainably and ethically made.

Our activewear is sweat wicking, breathable and sustainably and ethically made. The recycled fabric is buttery soft and so, so comfortable. The large phone pocket makes life convenient, whether you're hiking, running, walking the down or out for brunch.

About Team Timbuktu

Team Timbuktu was created out of frustration; when founder, Rhianna was fed up with hiking in clothes that not only looked bad, they were also environmentally damaging.

With her background in fashion she knew it was possible to make outdoors clothes more sustainably and launched the brand in 2018. The brand launched from a crowdfunding campaign and has been growing steadily since, with no compromise on style or sustainability in all product created.

We've crafted the highest quality product from custom engineered fabrics made from recycled bottles, partnered with ethical manufacturers and packed our product into home compostable, biodegradable packaging.

Meet the Makers

Our Activewear is made in Xiamen, China by a specialist stretch factory who are audited with the SA8000 ethical certification.  They're just down the road (about 15 minutes) from our jacket manufacturer and we chat to them weekly, in addition to our annual visits. We create our activewear fabric from a yarn made from recycled water bottles in a mill in Taipei, Taiwan.
