PILOT PHASE

A community driven project designing quality gear in an open and transparent way

Welcome! The Open Turri project is a collective effort among our outdoor community to design and manufacture gear openly and transparently. In doing so, we’re striving for:

  • Design innovation: Open design and specifications, to meet our specific gear needs

  • High value, Low cost: Direct sourcing of products from manufacturers, to make gear more widely accessible and affordable

  • Sustainability: Products made to last and management of product life cycle end to end, to take responsibility for our impact on the environment

  • Win-win community value creation: Social, economical, and environmental responsibility through transparency along the supply chain


WHAT’S THE PROJECT DOING?

1. Gather our community’s gear needs (current phase)

FINAL SUBMISSIONS: 
TBA

2. Develop partnerships with designers and factories to openly design gear

3. Agree on designs and pricing with the community

4. Pool together our community’s order to bulk manufacture with factories in a transparent process

5. Deliver gear to our community that’s higher value and lower cost

 

WHAT’S THE FUTURE OPPORTUNITY THAT INSPIRES US?
