  • FEATURE: The pandemic triggers the use of stoves on terraces: How to reduce its environmental impact

    “I was frustrated,” she remembers, because there were too many to wash continuously. Looking for a solution, she set up the company SittingSuits , which makes large coats to withstand the cold on terraces or outdoor events. According to the businesswoman, these garments, with the filling made from recycled plastic, are easier to wash and dry faster. At first she made them only for his bars, but now with the pandemic she sells to other places.

    Elis Elliot climbs inside a Sittingsuit to put the ‘sleeping bag you can wear’ through its paces.

    TIME spent in the great outdoors has always been instrumental in improving our physical and mental health, but that’s never been more important than it is right now. As the seasons change and we are forced to socialise and exercise outside, we need the right gear. To quote one of Scotland’s favourite sons, the inimitable Sir Billy Connolly: “There’s no such thing as bad weather, only the wrong clothing.” And these wise words fit perfectly with the ethos of the Sittingsuit.

  • Sustainable future

    At Sittingsuits we take our responsibility seriously, and try to implement sustainable solutions at every step.

    Fabrics and filling for the garments are made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles, which means we do not produce any new fabrics: thus saving energy, water and resources.
