Patagonia Inc. is a company from California, where they are still based today. Since 1973, Patagonia have been producing premium outdoor clothing for Skiing, Snowboarding, Skateboarding, Surfing, Climbing, Trail Running and Fly Fishing.
Patagonia are originally a company who made tools for climbers and have gradually grown to be the outdoor clothing giant they are today. Producing high quality technical clothing with simple designs and technical accessories for skiers, snowboarders, climbers, surfers, skateboarders, trail runners and fly fishermen is what Patagonia is all about.
Producing such great products requires a large amount of resource input and creates pollution as a by-product. To reduce environmental impact and any potential future effect on the sports they love, Patagonia work to reduce these harmful effects by using recycled polyester, organic cotton and by donating their time, services and at least 1% of sales to grassroots environmental groups.
