We're excited to bring the Fall 2019 Patagonia Clothing to Canada! As always it looks and feels amazing, while being some of the most socially and environmentally conscious clothing on earth. We got restocked in tons of great basics like T-Shirts, Crew Necks, Hoods and Beanies. Also, lots of new colours in the women's Bivy Down Vest (our #1 most popular women's Patagonia piece) and the men's Synch Snap T Sweaters (our #1 most popular men's Patagonia piece).

Patagonia Fair Trade Certified Sewing:
What is Patagonia Fair Trade Sewing? Any Patagonia clothing that says "Fair Trade Sewing" means that it is made in the most socially conscious factories on earth. Fair Trade Certified means that Patagonia pays a premium for everything made at that factory that goes directly into the pockets of the workers (never touches the factory owners). The workers at these factories pool the money and get to spend it on whatever they choose, from community projects, health care programs to child cares services. When you see the Patagonia Fair Trade Sewing logo you can rest easy knowing the factory workers are making a living wage in comfortable working conditions, something that should be mandatory on all clothing, but unfortunately isn't.
Patagonia clothing has more Fade Trade Certified products than any other clothing company. More than 42,000 workers have benefited from the Patagonia Fair Trade program to date, with thousands more being added every year.
"For Patagonia, Fair Trade is our first step on the path toward paying living wages in our supply chain. We don’t own any of the factories that make our products, so we have limited control over how much workers receive. Through Fair Trade, we can supplement workers’ wages and provide them with tangible benefits that improve their lives." -Patagonia.com
