Patagonia has long been a trend setter in the movement towards a more sustainable future. Well known for their Worn Wear program, which takes old Patagonia goods and refurbishes or fixes them, they have worked with Ecologic Designs on a number of projects, the most recent being the upcycling of worn waders into wader backpacks.
Each backpack was made from two waders. We produced 500 backpacks for global retail distribution.
