Patagonia is a brand that we value sitting amongst, as they too value sustainability and high quality. Like Oishi-m, Patagonia is a B Corporation (B Corp) Business - leaders of the global movement of people using business as a force for good™. We both meet certified standards of verified overall social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability, and aspire to use the power of business to solve social and environmental problems.

Patagonia's Mission is to build the best product, cause no unnecessary harm and use business to inspire and implement solutions to the environmental crisis. All Patagonia Jackets use Traceable Down, which provides the highest assurance of animal welfare in the down apparel industry. As of 2014, it's all they use. They trace the source of their down from parent farm to apparel factory to help ensure that the birds are not force-fed or live-plucked.
We are proud to stock their Jackets, Vests, Fleece and Backpacks, for babies, toddlers and children. Our own children have worn them for years and they’re a must-have for keeping your munchkins warm in winter - a true staple winter wardrobe piece... Windproof, easy-to-layer, toasty and warm, lightweight and highly compressible, these garments block the wind and water when conditions get dicey.
They use Recycled Polyester and actually began making recycled polyester from plastic soda bottles back in 1993 - the first outdoor clothing manufacturer to transform trash into fleece. By reducing the amount of virgin polyester in many of their products, and replacing it entirely with recycled polyester in some, they reduce their need for petroleum to make raw materials and cut landfill and incinerator waste.
The Patagonia Baby Micro D Snap-T is a super soft, comfortable full-zip, hooded jacket for children. This hooded fleece top is made from sumptuous, 100% recycled microdenier polyester fleece that's warm and quick-wicking, perfect for Bush Kinder and raising kids who prefer maps to apps by getting them outside in the weather.
Looking for a versatile pack? The Bonsai Pack 14L (top: middle, and above) or Refugio Pack15L (top: left & right) are ideal for school, beach, lunch, storage or homework. Sized to hold enough goodies for a full day on the trail or city streets, they feature top-loading designs for fast access to the main compartment and pockets to hold essentials. The recycled polyester fabric feels supple and light while providing the durability needed for season after season of use.
Just like Oishi-m, Patagonia is designed to endure hand-me-downs, giving each wearer a lasting, positive experience. Patagonia is the perfect fit for our brand and even has 'Hand-me-down' ID labels on each piece to extend the lifecycle of each piece, creating collectible heirlooms.
