Founded:  1978
Acquired by Gap Inc.: 1983


Banana Republic was born in Mill Valley, Calif., in 1978 as a shop for people with a passion for safari and expedition wear from faraway places, collected by our travel-obsessed founders.


Gap Inc. has set ambitious goals for 2020, including a 50% absolute reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in owned and operated facilities globally, and to divert 80% of the waste from landfill for our U.S. facilities.
