Why We Built This

These ultralight shorts are made from repurposed fabric for warm-weather trails and travels.

Why It's Different

We use 100% remnant fabric to build each Teca Short, which means material that might have gone to a landfill gets a second chance to shine.

About This Product


Made from the same ultralight, repurposed fabric as our best-selling Teca jackets, the Women’s Teca Short is a go-anywhere, warm-weather short that runs, hikes, and travels with ease. Taking style cues from retro track shorts, the Teca’s repurposed, polyester taffeta fabric features classic striped color-blocking and a DWR finish to shed wind and light precipitation. The encased elastic waistband provides a comfortable, streamlined fit, while the repurposed mesh lining helps manage moisture during warm days on the move.

Why You'll Love It

Limited Edition

Because each Teca Short is made using leftover fabric from other companies’ production runs, each colorway is also limited-edition. Once your favorite sells out, it’s gone for good!

Repurposed Polyester Taffeta

We don’t use just any leftover fabric to create the Teca Short. We use high-quality repurposed polyester taffeta with a water-resistant DWR finish.


Blending in is boring. The Teca Short’s optimistic color-blocking will help you stand out from the crowd.
