Archive for December, 2011
2011 marked the end of 3 generations of Timberland leadership by the Swartz family. Our founder Nathan built the footwear business that was our beginning, his son Sidney created the boot and the brand (both called Timberland) for which we would become globally recognized, and his grandson Jeff instilled in our company the belief that we could do more than make boots – we could make positive, sustainable impact in our communities and for our environment.
Before we look ahead to 2012, it seems only fitting to look back, with Sidney, and remember where we came from.
If you’re a film lover, that is.
The 2012 Sundance Film Festival starts in 3 weeks, and it’s all we can do to keep our Timberland Sundance team from flying to Park City right now. They’re THAT excited.
And why shouldn’t they be? Fresh mountain air, fresh powder snow, great films and the best people watching and celebrity sighting you could hope for in late January.
But 3 weeks is such a long time to wait. Which is why we thought we’d share a few of our favorite festival photos from years past to get us all in the Sundance mood:
You can continue to feed your Sundance fix by visiting the new Festivals section of our website.
Okay, so it’s a little impersonal – but if we took them time to send a holiday card to each and every one of our readers and fans, we’d still be licking stamps in April. (Not that we don’t love you, or licking stamps.)
From our Timberland family to yours, warm wishes for a happy, healthy holiday season!
Whether you’re in need of one last holiday gift or simply outfitting yourself for winter weather, we’ve got ideas to cover you head to toe:
This Handknit Lambswool Beanie is anything but boring; 100% lambswool provides cozy warmth, and the handknit cable design makes it a stylish stocking stuffer. Pair it with our extra-long companion scarf (we’ve added extra length for greater wrap-ability) for maximum head-and-shoulders coverage.
Give a gift that’s inspired by Timberland’s outdoor heritage and designed to be kinder to the environment. Our Men’s Earthkeepers™ Tweed Crew Socks meet our strict criteria for more eco-conscious products – they’re crafted in the USA from 70% recycled cotton, with a blend of acrylic, nylon and spandex to ensure maximum durability and comfort.
There’s nothing merry about cold feet. That’s why we created the Cable Cuff Boot Sock, designed specifically for wearing with our women’s tall boots. This breathable, lightweight sock is made from 100% polyester fleece for the ultimate in warmth and comfort – just fold the top over boots for contemporary, seasonal style.
Do your holiday shopping in style with our Earthkeepers™ Sauvage Wallet. This understated wallet is crafted in Italy from 100% premium washed cow leather from a tannery rated Silver for improved water, energy and waste management. Rustic and durable, this Earthkeepers™ wallet is perfect for the season’s frequent trips to the cash register.
When you’re ready to take time out from the holiday hustle, pull on a pair of our unisex Down Time Slippers. These lightweight slippers are soft and warm – feather down stuffed and lined with cozy fleece. A skid-resistant tread makes them as functional as they are comfortable.
Happy shopping and happy holidays!
