WE'RE OUT TO CHANGE THE INDUSTRY

These days you can watch a swell come to life with a few taps of your thumb, but finding out how your surf gear is made is still next to impossible. To promote transparency and support workers in our supply chain, all of our board shorts and bikinis are now made in Fair Trade Certified facilities.

It’s another world first for Patagonia, and it means that for every piece we make, we pay a premium that workers can use to elevate their standard of living. The certification also requires factories to comply with a strict set of standards for safe working conditions and environmental responsibility.

Fair Trade costs us a bit more—but we believe it’s worth every cent.
