What we care about

Sheltersuit is a place where people work together with thoughtfulness and dedication, creating products that help ease the symptoms for people experiencing homelessness.

Sharing shelter

We create products thoughtfully designed to protect people from the elements. With the help of our partners, these products are distributed all over the world, keeping people warm and dry.

Repurpose for purpose

The fashion and textiles industry is extraordinarily wasteful. For us, that’s an opportunity to take high quality materials and repurpose them into something meaningful.

Opportunities and development

We want to close the gap for people with a distance to the labour force. For newcomers, people who’ve overcome hardship or people with a disability, we feel privileged to create employment opportunities.

The Sheltersuit for cold winters

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

The Shelterbag, suited for warmer climates

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.

Thoughtful Design: Shelterbag evolution

Sheltersuit exists to help ease the symptoms of people experiencing homelessness. By listening to the people that are using our products, we determine the need and evaluate the results. Then, we do our best to convert that input into practice and incorporate it into the production process.

Working together with various relief organizations, we can be sure that the Shelterbags are distributed with care to people who are forced to spend the night outside.
