Patagonia is a Californian company that originated from the world of climbing. The requirements for the quality and usability of the clothes are tough - Patagonia develops and tests clothes in close cooperation, e.g. with climbers, surfers and skiers.
The environmental perspective and ethics are central to Patagonia’s operations. The brand has several programs to improve the conditions of factories and workers as well as the environment. Information about the manufacturing chain is included in the product labels to make it as transparent as possible. The down used by Patagonia is always ethically produced or recycled. The Patagonia website contains comprehensive information on product maintenance and repair. The goal of the "Worn wear" program is that the clothes can be worn for as long as possible.
