Patagonia is an outdoor clothing and equipment brand that offers stylish, high quality and high performance gear designed for use in the harshest environments as well as for casual wear. Known for being one of the most responsible brands in the world when it comes to concern for our planet and the people on it, Patagonia has always based its core values on environmental awareness, and has a history to be genuinely proud of.
In 1953, at the age of 14, just as he began his climbing career, Yvon Chouinard didn't think that he would be the future creator of Patagonia. After setting up 'Chouinard Equipment' with fellow climber Tom Frost, they became one of the biggest climbing hardware businesses around.
Officially, the Patagonia outdoor clothing brand was founded in 1973 in Ventura, producing apparel ideal for mountain climbers and other outdoor activities alike. The history of Patagonia is a fascinating one, and at each step of the brand’s evolution first and foremost has been concern for the environment and the fair treatment of people.
While environmental responsibility is a topic that many brands have been more vocal about in recent years, it’s something that has been ingrained in Patagonia right from the start. Through organisations such as the Conservation Alliance and 1% For The Planet, Patagonia has led an environmental charge in the world of outdoor clothing.
As well as designing and manufacturing their products using recycled materials, organic cotton and low impact construction methods, Patagonia is also a leading force in environmental activism and raising awareness of issues that affect the planet we all call home.
