Fashion Fresh From the Sea

Maybe it’s a symptom of our Yankee frugality, but at Timberland we LOVE to recycle.  There’s something oddly thrilling about giving old stuff like plastic bottles and discarded tires a second life as recycled materials in our products.

And as we get more excited about recycling, we get a little crazy.  For example: Recycled coffee grounds in our S.Café® yarn (the grounds trap odors and absorb sweat — who knew?).  And when you’re designing a jacket and you need it to be waterproof and durable, why not start by thinking about other materials that are waterproof and durable?  Like, I dunno … fishing nets and ropes, salvaged from the ocean?

Introducing ReNet™ recycled nylon fabric:

Using ReNet™ in our products means less waste in the landfill (or worse – floating around in the ocean) — and wearing a jacket with ReNet™ in it gives YOU a whopper of a good story to tell on your next fishing trip.

Learn more about ReNet™ and the other recycled and renewable materials we use in our products in the Timberland Technology Guide.

7 Cups of Caffeine in Every Coat

You can leave the travel mug at home if you’re wearing our Formentor Race Jacket. It’s made with S.Café yarn, which contains PET from recycled plastic bottles and – wait for it – recycled coffee grounds.

Why coffee grounds?  Turns out they’re excellent at absorbing odor, which is pretty important if you’re working up a sweat … or shipwrecked on a deserted island without a bar of soap (it could happen).

Here’s Dean, our senior director of apparel, to tell us more:

S.Cafe is just one more way we’re thinking about the planet as we design our products.  To learn more about the eco-conscious materials and technologies we use, check out the Timberland Technology Guide.  To get your own Formentor Race Jacket (or one of our other non-caffeinated styles),  shop our outerwear collection.
