Pangaia and Timberland launch capsule collection
Materials science company Pangaia and footwear brand Timberland announced on Thursday the launch of their first-ever collaboration revealing a collection designed with nature in mind.
The footwear capsule features a reimagined six-inch boot and a mule, both offered in men’s and women’s sizes, that combines partly natural materials, bold colors and iconic style.
In particular, the premium Fabric 6-Inch Boot is an updated version of the classic with subtle flaps covering the eyelets and tonal outsoles. The modern style is also made in part with renewable materials such as responsibly grown rubber, abaca plant fiber and organically grown cotton.
Likewise, the Fabric Slip-On Mule was created in the color stone. As part of Timberland’s Timberloop design process, both the outsole and the inner bootie/webbing system are engineered to be easily disassembled at the end of the shoe’s life. Timberland customers can then send back the product once no longer in use, to be properly recycled.
Lastly, items come with a custom textblock explaining the material composition - a design detail synonymous with Pangaia. The textblock on the boots reads, “These boots are made in part using responsibly grown rubber, abaca plant fiber and organically grown cotton,” while the textblock on the mule reads, “These shoes are made in part using responsibly grown rubber, abaca plant fiber and organically grown cotton. They are designed for circularity.”
The collection is now available on Pangaia.com, Timberland.com, and in select Timberland stores globally.
