As the seventh generation of her family to farm the same land, working from sunup to sundown comes naturally to Heather Darby. The fourth profile in our Workwear series takes a look at the perpetual motion required to be both a research agronomist at the University of Vermont and the backbone of a 200-year-old, certified organic family farm.
Workwear is not a new thing for us, but we’re excited to be reimagining the work-specific side of Patagonia. To stand up to the toughest tasks, we’ve developed a utilitarian line of jackets, shirts, pants, shorts and overalls built with super-durable, long-wearing fabrics. Our newly developed All Seasons Hemp Canvas is a lightweight and remarkably durable material that requires no break-in and offers the resilience and freedom of motion needed to carry the day as the temperatures rise. Fair Trade Certified™ for sewing. See the collection at patagonia.com/workwear.
