A 20 year employee of Patagonia, Kourtney Morgan is the senior designer on Patagonia’s sportswear team designing all things fleece. She is also the creative director for Recrafted, a Patagonia project begun in collaboration with the company’s Worn Wear project first developed to act as a set of tools to help customers take the position of mutual responsibility… extending the life of the products Patagonia makes by providing significant resources for responsible care, repair, reuse, resale, and recycling at the end of a garment’s life. Recrafted features up-cycled clothing and a variety of bags from used garments and liability fabrics. It was due in part to the Recrafted project that Kourtney was listed in this month’s Fast Company Magazine as one of the most creative people in business, alongside the likes of covergirl and founder of the Algorithmic Justice League, Joy Buolamwini, actor Ryan Reynolds, choreographer Twyla Tharp, and Kourtney’s personal favorite, singer, songwriter, musician, record producer, artist, actor, writer, music theorist, and filmmaker, former Talking Head David Byrne.
