Mister Timbuktu creates responsibly manufactured high quality outdoors apparel from recycled materials. We know that you shouldn't have to compromise on quality, aesthetic, people or planet in order to create an epic product. We're super stringent about who we work with, what materials we use and have spent months ensuring our supply chain is top notch.
Our incredibly innovative fabric supplier creates fabrics made from recycled plastics. This fabric is called RPET (recycled polyethylene terephthalate) and is a more sustainable option, as it diverts plastics from landfill and uses 50% less energy to make than virgin polyester.
But it doesn't feel tough or scratchy like you'd imagine plastic would feel, it's super smooth, stretchy and comfortable. Want to know how on earth we can make fabric from plastic bottles?
