Timberland is a world leader in design and marketing of premium quality footwear, clothing and accessories for those who love outdoor life – from the city to the trails and back again. From the design down to production, Timberland tackles environmental challenges to minimize impact on planet, while also delivering on style and lightweight performance.
Marcolin embraces the values of the brand, creating eyewear collections that respect its heritage. The range includes responsible styles made by using bio-based materials for a reduced environmental impact. Most of the sunglasses and optical frames contain at least 35% to a maximum of 80% bio-based content and have earned the coveted Earthkeepers™ designation. Earthkeepers™, started as a collection in 2007, has evolved into an overarching philosophy that serves as a pathfinder for the Timberland® brand, from its commitment to protect and restore the outdoors, to improve social conditions globally, and find ways to make products more responsibly.
