PROVENANCE AND ETHICS
Patagonia was founded by Yvon Chouinard in 1973, the company's roots are in clothing for rock and alpine climbing, but they now produce a diverse mix of apparel targeted towards skiers, snowboarders, surfers and climbers. Patagonia are a world leader in creating ethical, sustainable clothing.
PFC-Free: Historically, waterproof finishes have been made using per- or polyfluorinated chemicals, which contain fluorine, great for water repellence but a “forever chemicals” that harms human and animal health and can persist in our environment for thousands of years. Patagonia have spent significant time, energy and dollars to find the best PFC- and PFAS-free alternatives without sacrificing performance and durability, setting a standard to eliminate the use of these chemistries industry wide.
Recycled Nylon: Patagonia have been using recycled polyester in their garments for 20 years, but for some reason locked deep in polymer chemistry, nylon is much more difficult to recycle than polyester. After years of research, development, and testing, recycled nylon fibres that are suitable for apparel have been found. Some of the recycled nylon comes from post-industrial waste fibre, yarn collected from a spinning factory, and waste from the weaving mills that can be processed into reusable nylon fibre.
