The fashion industry is one of the highest polluting industries in the world, Sheltersuit wants to take this waste and give it purpose. Sheltersuit designs and manufactures multifunctional products that provide immediate shelter to people experiencing homelessness. They use upcycled materials to craft a water- and windproof jacket that can be transformed easily into a sleeping bag.

Sheltersuit is currently based in the Netherlands, New York and South Africa. Their vision is to provide protection to every single human being experiencing homelessness around the world.
