DIE DEL DÌA & TECA
All Del Día products are made in the Philippines using fabric left over from other companies’ large production runs. This keeps perfectly good materials out of the landfill, putting them into the hands of thoughtful adventurers like you.
THE ORIGIN STORY
How It All Started
Our design team wanted to create products to help empower factory workers as makers. Then we had a bright idea, literally. Not only would using remnant fabric be better for Mother Earth, it would also give factory workers more creative control. They could create one-of-a-kind colourways from the vibrant, leftover fabric—each colour combo the unique signature of an indispensable maker.
CREATIVE SEWERS, MANY COLOURS
Every Del Día and Teca are the products of many hands. But whether they feature aquamarine blue, deep purple or ruby red – that’s up to the sewer. They put together the funky colour combos that make each item distinct, giving them final creative control over every backpack, satchel, vest and jacket in the Del Día and Teca families.
MAKING LEFTOVERS SHINE
Made With (Re)Purpose™
All products in our (Re)Purpose™ Collection use repurposed fabric—fabric left over from other companies’ production runs that was originally created for another purpose. We know that leftovers don’t have to be lesser, and our Del Día and Teca collections are proof.
The Teca Collection keeps fabric out of the landfill, puts thoughtful, limited-edition jackets in the hands of conscious adventurers like you.
“The Cálido’s main side shares a lot of the same design language [as the original Teca]. However, on the reverse side we introduced a new square quilt that we haven’t used before on our insulated jackets,” Ben explains. “We wanted to offer another insulation option [that didn’t incorporate] the down we use in many of our styles. It is important that we are listening to our customers who do not want to support the use of feathers.”
