sleeping bags, therefore making each shelter suit one of a kind. And that did

from rain and streetlights. It also incorporates a scar for further protection.
The shelter suit is a passion project of a compassionate and forward thinking
Dutch designer named Bass Timmer. He was inspired by a heartbreaking story of
a friend who lost his father to hypothermia due to being vulnerable to frigid
weather conditions while living on the street. This risk is real for millions of
people globally who are forced to sleep outside in the cold due to poverty,
mental illness, unexpected loss of jobs from COVID 19 or natural disasters and wars.
Tamer, who had started his own clothing line after finishing at
the Fashion Academy at a rock event event realized that high end clothing wasn’t his mission.
Instead, he wanted to help those in need who didn’t even have
a proper code for survival. From the impactful creation of the shelter suit
came the Shelter Suit Foundation, which gives shelter suits free of charge
to homeless people and refugees. The Shelter Food Foundation has been
able to keep over 6000 people living on the streets or in refugee camps warm.
Since 2014, Shelter Suit has been designing and manufacturing emergency
disaster relief and multifunctional products. It has partnered with local NGOs
and shelters to comprehend the actual needs of each community.
It uses twenty one thousand kilograms of upcycled materials,
which are created from the textile industry surplus of fabrics.
And additionally, one hundred and twelve jobs were created for
former refugees and formerly homeless individuals to close the loop
and create job opportunities for communities to overcome poverty.
