people helping people

our mission

Since 2014 we’ve been designing and manufacturing emergency disaster relief, multifunctional products that provide immediate shelter to people experiencing homelessness.

10,000+ homeless protected

Partnering with local NGOs and shelters understand the true needs of each community, we provide complementary services and distribute our products to the people that need them the most.

21,000kg of upcycled materials

Created from the textile industry's surplus of fabrics, we believe in repurposing materials for a purpose.

112 jobs
created

Produced by people with a distance to the labour market (ie: former refugees and former homeless individuals), we want to close the loop and create job opportunities for communities to overcome poverty.

Innovative design that provides immediate shelter

The Sheltersuit is a wind and waterproof jacket with an optional sleeping bag attachment to provide immediate shelter. The Sheltersuit consist of a jacket, sleeping bag and a duffel bag. The jacket is made from high-quality, breathable tent-fabric. The inner lining is made from upcycled sleeping bags, making each Sheltersuit unique. The large hood shields the face from rain and streetlights, and contains an integrated scarf.

The Shelterbag is a portable, sheltered bed that rolls up into a bag. It is waterproof, lightweight, easy to handle and has an extra compartment for some personal items. It comes with a sleeping bag and a built-in pillow but also has room for an extra mattress or blanket, making it adaptable for all seasons. A flexible tent pole is integrated into the hood to keep it upright, providing more space and better shelter from the rain.
