Patagonia continuously develops new ways to reduce its environmental impact as a company while still making the best possible product. These efforts include making products with Repreve.
A pioneer in recycled fleece.
As the outdoor-industry leader in fabric development, Patagonia has always invested significantly in the research and engineering of new fabrics.
Repreve makes a difference.
Repreve is the recycled ingredient in a wide range of Patagonia products, including those made with Polartec® performance fabrics. Repreve polyester has the same quality and integrity as non-recycled polyester.
Making more clothing sustainable. By using Repreve, Patagonia can offer recycled polyester in many products, including Capilene® 3 and 4 baselayers, Tropic Comfort shirts, and a wide range of fleece items. One of our favorites is the R1®. It’s made from Polartec® performance fabric that contains Repreve 100. Repreve 100 is made entirely from plastic bottles.
