Team Timbuktu began when founder, Rhianna was sick of hiking in clothes that didn’t reflect her values, or her sense of style. She didn’t want to wear baggy, khaki pants designed for Everest- when she was only heading outside for a couple of hours.
With her background in fashion (previously managing design and production for a snowboarding company), she knew it was possible to create technical clothing without the negative impact of traditional synthetic fabrics made from oil.
Sustainability is a core value of the brand, and changes everything that they do, From their fabrics, factories, packaging and freight, Team Timbuktu are committed to continual improvement. Using only certified recycled and organic fabrics, to eliminate all plastic packaging from their supply chain and visiting their factories yearly to ensure incredible relationships.
Sustainability is a continually evolving journey and they are committed to continue to improve . They started with fabrics that were 50% recycled and cardboard mailers, and have transitioned to 100% recycled fabric and compostable packaging and plant a tree for every order.
