Patagonia Uses Reclaimed Cotton, Down and Wool for “Truth to Materials” Collection

Patagonia-Truth-Materials-01-630x420Patagonia gets featured on this site on a regular basis. This is simply because there are a lot of sustainability initiatives happening within the company.

The following is lifted directly from the Selectism website and was written by Jeff Carvalho.

Patagonia is taking the reclamation road, “reimagining the first stage of a product’s life” by thinking about how and where they source fabrics and textiles. The first steps into this reconsideration come in the form of “Truth to Materials,” a new collection by the outdoor maker. The initiative goes back to the factory floors across the globe to reclaim remnant textiles for repurposing: wools from Calamai mill in Italy, cotton TAL Group factories in China and Malaysia, and repurposed down from Alabama are just three examples of resourcing textiles back into Patagonia wears.

Patagonia “Truth to Materials” collection features an assortment of garments including undyed cashmere pullovers, wool jackets and many more. You can shop the new collection online.

    It’s nice to see a company this large continuing with the ‘green’ tradition, re-purposing materials, and offering quality products to consumers who are seeking out better ways of living. Other companies should take note of Patagonia’s eco friendly success!
