The clothing company Patagonia has always been one of our favorite brands. For years they been environmentally conscious through their ethical business practices. Not only do they make great outerwear for men and women, but their wetsuits are some of the best in the industry and have changed the way surfers around the world view cold water waves and sustainable products.
Patagonia continues to lead the pack with their sustainable approach in their 2011 collection of outerwear for both men and women, even children. All of their threads are recyclable through their Common Threads Recycling Program plus more than half of their collection is made by using environmentally conscience fabrics.
Patagonia has always been known to merge fashion with function even in their past Vintage Patagonia collections. The latest 2011 collection is no exception, take a look at some of their latest pieces:
This season, Patagonia has revamped their merino wool collection with a new blend of 80% merino wool and 20% recycled polyester that are Bluesign-approved and chlorine-free. Patagonia claims that the garments provide odor control and are breathable. The merino comes from farmers in Australia who practice sustainable land management and do do not perform mulesing.
Patagonia’s iconic Synchilla Snap-T Pullover and Re-Tool Hoody make a comeback this season with vintage prints and retro colors, drawing inspiration from the brand’s archives.
