Patagonia is launching a line of workwear made with Iron Forge Hemp™ canvas, a new blend of industrial hemp, recycled polyester and organic cotton that is more durable, abrasion resistant and comfortable off the rack than conventional cotton duck canvas. With farmers, builders, ranchers, foresters and environmental activists in mind, Patagonia set out to build a collection of high-quality, function-specific workwear that uses less harmful materials and withstands the rigors of the field or the job site.

The company’s approach towards product design demonstrates a bias for simplicity and utility. Its mission is, in building its products, to cause no unnecessary harm, and to use business to inspire and implement solutions to the environmental crisis.
