At Cotopaxi, we like to shake things up. Those scraps of leftover fabric? We’re making gear out of them. That old way of insulating a jacket? We’re using llama fiber. By taking an inventive, considered approach product design, we believe we can help make a positive impact on the world.
The old standard is, well, getting old. By empowering the people who make our gear, building lasting relationships, and ensuring our products come to life under fair, sustainable working conditions, we’re changing the supply chain for the better.
