Shortly after I left Patagonia to pursue my work with Amazon rainforest artisans and resume my own custom eco clothing design, David Janowick (to my left) – from the Tesla Motors design team – and I set up a meeting with the Patagonia design and materials development teams. Franz von Holzhausen (wearing a black tee), Chief Designer of Tesla Motors, heads the talented team of geniuses who have so far given us the fast, long-range and sexy 100% electric Tesla Roadster – that I have driven a number of times – and the Model S. Here, I am pictured in the Patagonia parking lot with the Tesla Team and the Roadster, which stayed overnight in my driveway before the meeting in 2009.
That’s my little 2003 Prius in the background. I’ve owned 2 Priuses since the end of 2000. I love my Prius, but I look forward to getting a fully electric Model S or the next vehicle they come out with!
