New York – The collective and fashion brand aims to create a global open-source platform for the latest eco-solutions.
PANGAIA is made up of scientists, technologists, artists and designers who are working together to create sustainable clothing made from renewable resources and lab-grown materials. Its first collection is a range of bio-based and recycled wardrobe essentials, including t-shirts, tracksuits and puffer jackets.
Committed to a zero-waste circular system, PANGAIA considers its environmental impact in all elements of the customer experience – products are sent in bio-based packaging and can be repaired or upcycled through a partnership with The Renewal Workshop. Furthermore, all garment logos and prints use a water-based PVC-free ink.
PANGAIA is an example of a brand incorporating eco-friendly values into every aspect of its business. Earlier in 2018, we spoke to Dr Daniel Benkendorf about the issue of sustainability, and why both consumers and fashion brands have been so slow to embrace it.
