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.

All weather jackets made for the outdoors

WHY ARE OUR JACKETS SO GOOD? THEY'RE 100% RECYCLED, AND

Waterproof, Windproof and Breathable

We've all had a jacket that's let us down; rain seeped in, you got sweaty,it wasn't sustainably and ethically made, or perhaps it was so ridiculous looking that you'd rather just get wet.

Our jackets are rated 10K waterproof, 10K breathable and windproof too. And it's not just tech talk, we've made the highest quality product to ensure our jackets will never let you down.

They'll hold up in the pouring rain for hours and hours, they'll keep you protected on a windy walk and are stylish enough to blend in on the streets, on your wintery commute, walking the dog, riding your bike, and all the other activities where you want to be protected from the elements.

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 Waterproof Jackets are made in Xiamen, China by an outerwear specialist factory who are audited with the BSCI (Business Social Compliance Initiative).

We’ve been working with them since the beginning of Team Timbuktu and love to visit each year to hang out with Jackey and eat Chao Mian (fried noodles). They're just down the road (about 15 minutes) from our activewear manufacturer too! We create our waterproof fabric from a yarn made from recycled water bottles in a mill in Taipei, Taiwan whom we also visit too.
