Patagonia Better Sweater Takki Naiset, birch white
Granite dust, dirt, dog hair—nothing seems to dampen the natural good looks of this sweater-like fleece jacket. The fabric, spun from heathered yarns and dyed with a low-impact process that significantly reduces the use of dyestuffs, energy and water compared to conventional dyeing methods, has a wool-knit face and a soft fleece interior. The full-front zip ends in a stand-up collar and zipper garage to prevent chafing at the chin. Front forward seams and rear princess seams deliver a contoured shape for easy layering. Soft and smooth polyester jersey trims the wind flap, cuffs, hem and pockets, which include zippered handwarmers, two interior drop-ins and a zippered left-sleeve pocket.
bluesign Approved Fabric Any fabric that’s bluesign approved offers the highest level of consumer safety by employing methods and materials in its manufacture that conserves resources and minimizes impacts on people and the environment.
Fair Trade Certified Patagonia pays a premium for every Fair Trade Certified item that carries this label. That extra money goes directly to the workers at the factory, and they decide how to spend it. The program also promotes worker health and safety and social and environmental compliance, and encourages dialog between workers and management. Fair Trade is one of the first tools which they use at Patagonia to raise workers´ wages, improve their standard of living and move them closer to earning a living wage.
