This is a Sheltersuit

The Sheltersuit is a wind and waterproof jacket with an optional sleeping bag attachment to provide immediate shelter. The Sheltersuit consists 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 Sheltersuit was designed to be worn in cold climates.

This is a Shelterbag

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 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.

At the frontline in Ukraine, the Sheltersuits were a big help in our emergency aid efforts. In harsh winter conditions, vulnerable groups were massively helped by these Sheltersuits, offering a quick and effective solution.

About Sheltersuit Foundation

Non-profit organisation Sheltersuit was founded in 2014 to design and produce multifunctional products that protect socio-economic homeless people, refugees in camps, and war- and disaster victims against cold, rain and wind.

These products are not meant to be a replacement for finding a home, but a supplement to when you have no other choice.

More than 20.000 items have now been distributed worldwide with the help of (local) aid organisations.

The products are produced in social factories in The Netherlands and South Africa by people with a distance to the labour market. Recycled and reusable materials are used as much as possible.

The Sheltersuit Foundation has offices in Enschede (NL), Capetown (SA), New York (USA), and London (UK) and strives for a world where everybody has dignity and access to shelter.
