Timberland launches SS22 Earthkeepers BY RAEBURN collection
As the brand’s most eco- innovative product collection, Earthkeepers by RÆBURN serves as a pathfinder for the brand each season – an always evolving experiment to push the boundaries of responsible design using high quality, earth-conscious materials.
From a design perspective, Christopher Raeburn, Collaborator at Large for Timberland, draws on his utilitarian and responsible design ethos to bring a consumer everything needed for a summer adventure.
Offered in a muted natural palette with pops of orange, the minimally-designed collection features bio- based GreenStride comfort soles, no-dye garments, ReBOTL fabric made using recycled plastic, and Tencel x Refibra fabric made of responsibly sourced wood pulp and recycled cotton.
Key Earthkeepers by RÆBURN styles for SS22 include:
- Earthkeepers by Raeburn GreenStride Edge EK+ Hikers (Men’s/Women’s): this lightweight lace-up hiker features GreenStride comfort soles made of 75% renewable bio-based material with sugar cane and rubber from trees, breathable ReBOTL fabric linings containing at least 50% recycled plastic, and uppers made with Tencel x Refibra fabric. A climbing grade rubber toe cap also helps protect toes on the trail.
- All-Gender Earthkeepers by Raeburn Water-Repellent Parka: this parka is responsibly made without the use of dyes and uses cotton that is 100% organically grown without chemicals or pesticides.
- All-Gender Earthkeepers by Raeburn Packable Camo-Print Anorak: this anorak features an allover camo print and is responsibly made with cotton that is organically grown without chemicals or pesticides.
- Other pieces in the collection include the Adaptable Mixed Media Camo Pant; Mixed Media Camo Tee; Undyed Poplin Shirt and Undyed Zip-Off Pant.
Christopher Raeburn commented: “I’m incredibly excited to share our latest innovations within the Earthkeepers by RÆBURN collection. Every piece in the SS22 capsule was designed with a greener future in mind, taking only what we need and using it responsibly. And stylistically, we’ve drawn on the brand’s work and outdoor heritage, as well as the extensive archive we have at the RÆBURN Lab in London, to bring a fresh and progressive new look to the market.”
A limited Earthkeepers by RÆBURN assortment drops this week at Timberland retail stores, online and at select wholesale partners worldwide.
