Organic Cotton

In 1996, with an increased awareness of the dangers of pesticide use and synthetic fertilizers in growing conventional cotton, we began the exclusive use of organically grown cotton in all of our cotton products.

The quality of organic cotton is equal to or better than conventionally grown cotton, yet organically grown methods support biodiversity and healthy ecosystems, improve the quality of soil and often use less water. Growing organically takes more time, requires more knowledge and skill, and, for now, costs more. But it’s worth it.

To ensure we are buying cotton that is organic as defined by the USDA’s National Organic Program, we require numerous certificates issued by an accredited third-party certification body for every step of the supply chain, from farm to factories.

Women's Mainstay Tee is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from My go-to tee Great fit, style, weight, and colors. Soft, comfortable, light weight but not too thin. Dropped one star because after a few months the fabric is pillling a bit. I'm 5.6, 140 and size M fits well without being clingy around the middle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A new staple for me I ordered a few colors, thinking I'd pick one or two and return whichever I liked least. Well, no dice on that. Once I tried them on, I had to keep them all. They're everything I want in a tee—super comfy, just the right weight and nicely cut. As a bonus, they're exactly what I want when traveling to countries where it's hot, but where modesty is appreciated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit, dries quick I bought this t-shirt for a recent trip to India. This t-shirt actually dried quicker than a "quick dry" t-shirt that I had brought, even in the humid temperatures. It has a really nice relaxed fit and was comfortable throughout.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect T! I love this T-shirt. It's a classic perfect T. I bought 3 in white and 3 in the charcoal and I wear them like it's my daily uniform. I'd love it if Patagonia came out with black. I love the weight, not too heavy and not too thin. They're slightly fitted, without being too much so. Patagonia, you nailed it with this classic T please don't change a thing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit, light and airy! These are my favorite, 'go to' shirts. On a recent trip to the Boston, MA store, I bought 3 more. I would really like the ink black color to be available soon! I'll buy all colors you put out. They are great with jeans or baggies and perfect for hot weather or cool weather with a cardi. I DO recommend washing ALONE or with each other only (on gentle) because the material is thin and pills very easily. I actually hand wash mine and hang to dry so they don't wear out. Awesome shirt :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit Bought this in white a few months ago and loved it so much I ordered another color, would have order more but they were sold out in all other colors. It is a great fit and nice and lightweight. I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite Tee! I bought this shirt in Green (Medium...I'm 5' 5" 150lbs) a few months ago and now totally obsessed with it. I wear it all the time! It fits loosely, but is flattering, unlike most Women's cut shirts which I always fit are either way too tight, too boxy, or too long in the torso. This compliments my figure and is so lightweight and comfortable to wear. The only downside is I recently purchased in White and when it arrived I found it to be totally see-through. I was wearing a gray sports bra and could see everything. I was really hoping this would become my go-to white tee, but its pretty much transparent. There is no sheer issues with the Green color though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Favorite t shirt I got 2 of these t shirts for a vacation trip to a National Park. They turned out my favorites. Love the material and the comfortable fit is perfect for after a long hike and a swim.
