Who We Are
Patagonia was started by a band of climbers and surfers back in the ’60s. Our approach to design of our clothing and gear demonstrates a bias for simplicity, utility and quality. While alpinism remains at the core of our business, we also make clothing for skiing, snowboarding, surfing, fly fishing, paddling, trail running and travel. “Make the best product, cause no unnecessary harm, and use business to inspire and implement solutions to the environmental crisis,” is our reason for being.
Where You’ll Find Us
Visit our new store in Toronto at 500 King Street West. It’s located in a beautiful historic building dating back to 1872 that once housed the Gurney Stove Factory. We used a lot of existing materials, as well as reclaimed lumber, recycled metal, bamboo wall fixtures and hangers, industrial antiques and non VOC paint, seeking to mitigate environmental harm, make a gift to the community, and create a center for environmental activism.
