This week, Patagonia launched a new collection called Truth to Materials – a capsule collection containing seven styles which explore radical new methods of manufacturing, born from a desire to reimagine the first stage of a product’s life: the source of raw materials. Each piece is made from reclaimed or alternatively sourced fabrics — Men’s Undyed Cashmere Snap-T Pullover, Women’s Undyed Cashmere Cardigan, Men’s Reclaimed Cotton Hoody, Women’s Reclaimed Cotton Crew, Men’s Reclaimed Wool Jacket, Women’s Reclaimed Wool Parka, and the Reclaimed Down Scarf.
Truth to Materials honors the purest form of a material possible, be it minimally processed cashmere and wool, or going beyond organic by reusing cutting room scrap that was otherwise destined for the landfill. It’s about discovering the origin of a material and staying as true to that as possible during every step of design and manufacturing. The clothes in this collection represent a deeper dive into the progress Patagonia has already made — with materials like organic cotton and recycled polyester — but with less dyeing and processing, fewer virgin resources and an even greater focus on craftsmanship.
