Have the southern Andes on your mind? Our Fitz Roy Trout Trucker Hat combines what we love best about the raw Patagonia landscape: wild trout and towering vistas. The hat’s mid-crown front and bill are made from 100% organic cotton canvas; polyester mesh in the back circulates airflow. The structured six-panel design and pliable, precurved brim provide comfort that goes the distance. Adjustable snaps in back customize the fit.
In 1996, with an increased awareness of the dangers of pesticide use and synthetic fertilizers in growing conventional cotton, we began the exclusive use of organically grown cotton in all of our cotton products.
The quality of organic cotton is equal to or better than conventionally grown cotton, yet organically grown methods support biodiversity and healthy ecosystems, improve the quality of soil and often use less water. Growing organically takes more time, requires more knowledge and skill, and, for now, costs more. But it’s worth it.
To ensure we are buying cotton that is organic as defined by the USDA’s National Organic Program, we require numerous certificates issued by an accredited third-party certification body for every step of the supply chain, from farm to factories.
