Patagonia grew out of a small company that made tools for climbers. Alpinism remains at the heart of a worldwide business that still makes clothes for climbing – as well as for skiing, snowboarding, surfing, fly fishing, paddling and trail running. Patagonia travels the globe building relationships with suppliers that make high-quality materials while reducing their environmental and social impact. Visit www.patagonia.com for more information.
