@naturalysam:  I suspect that would be more of an arts related field, but it depends on what exactly you plan on doing. How much school have you already completed?

My school had a Polymer, Textiles, and Fiber Engineering (PTFE) degree.  It is definitely something that is not offered everywhere and is definitely the science side of things (which is what you would probably need to work somewhere like Patagonia, I’d think).

I have one friend who graduated with this degree and he now works for Milliken, which is a carpet / flooring company.

ETA: A quick search tells me that Georgia Tech and Auburn both have programs.  You could also probably do a more general Materials Science Engineering (MSE) program and try to focus or specialize within that.
