Patagonia has always been a foreward-thinking brand, with a legion of devoted customers who sport their jackets, pants, backpacks, and countless other pieces of outdoor gear. While they’re known for making high quality products for the outdoor adventurer, lately they’ve been showing off something else – the Worn Wear Wago.
The Wago is a biodiesel fueled 1991 Dodge Cummins truck with a very unique modification. The team recruited artist Jay Nelson to help convert the bed into a handmade redwood camper shell using salvaged wine barrels.
And the Wago isn’t just a showpiece. It was built with a very special mission in mind. The Wago and its crew will travel around the country offering free repairs for Patagonia clothing. Inside the bed you’ll find an industrial sewing machine that serves as the workhorse for their mission. So far they have Seattle, Moab, Boulder, Chicago, and Asheville on their list of places to stop.
Along the way the repair experts hope to spread the gospel of concious consumerism and fashion as they cruise through farmers markets, coffee shops, and campgrounds throughout the U.S. on their mission to mend.
