With sustainability in mind, Timberland has launched an entire collection made out of recycled materials.
Timberland, famous for their rugged shoes, has incorporated ReBOTL technology to used recycled plastic bottles to make an innovative material for the entire collection.
Timberland is calling the material RPET (Recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate) and the company has currently used more than 445 metric tonnes of plastic waste that includes plastic bottles which have been used for this collection.
Each piece is made up of at least 40 per cent of RPET, while the bags are made up of 62 per cent of the material. Timberland claims that they are working on incorporating more of the material in the future collections.
The brand is also targeting 100 per cent use of sustainable cotton and already reached 77 per cent by 2019.
Consisting of outerwear, sneakers and accessories, the collection revolves around workwear that inclines more towards a casual approach.
Inspired by the summer, colours like mustard, navy and aqua green make up the majority of the collection. The lining of the jackets is made up of RPET along with the linings of the sneakers and bags.
The collection also consists of a pair of rugged worker pants that match the jackets with patches.
The sneakers themselves fall on the chunkier side and have an olive-coloured exterior with a white mid-sole and a black bottom sole with ridges. Other shoe styles like oxfords and hikers are also present in the collection.
The jackets start at £130 while the pants start at £80 and shoes at £110. The collection is available on Timberland’s UK website.
Timberland, owned by VF Corporation, sells apparels, leather goods, watches, glasses and sunglasses.
