Patagonia is in business to save our home planet. The brand was founded in the '70s by a group of dirtbag climbers and surfers, whose approach to design and business reflected their minimalist style. Simplicity and utility remain at the heart of Patagonia’s design principals who make clothes for climbers, skiers, snowboarders, surfers, mountain bikers and trail runners. These are silent sports. None require an engine; rarely do they deliver the cheers of a crowd. In each, reward comes in the form of hard-won grace and moments of connection with nature. That deep respect for nature has led Patagonia to work at sourcing materials and using processes that have less impact on the planet. Organically grown cotton, hemp, sustainably grazed merino wool, traceable down, recycled polyester, and FairTrade™ sewn certifications make up just a few of their initiatives. They continue to offer versatile, high-quality products that are responsibly made and built to last.
