Colour

The dyes we use are Oeko-Tex® certified, meaning they are non-toxic and free from harmful chemicals. The process is water efficient and treats waste effluents, as well as capturing and reusing water during the washing processes.

This process minimizes the impacts from effluent release on the planet, while promoting low water consumption. Our Oeko-Tex® dyes are bright, bold, and most importantly, better for our planet.

In order to reduce color loss in our products dyed with Environmentally Friendly Dyes, we recommend using an eco-friendly detergent such as Ecover or Seventh Generation when washing your garments. Most eco-friendly detergents don’t have an optical brightening component in them, which is a chemical found in most standard detergents. This chemical is known to lighten the color within garments when washing.

These products use a mixture of organic and recycled cotton. Did you know that each time a material is recycled, it produces shorter fibers? This means the material sometimes tends to pill and shed more than virgin fibers.

At PANGAIA, we are dedicated to reducing excess consumption of our planet’s resources. That’s why we don’t pre-wash our garments which in turn, saves water. We are currently working with our factories to find a solution to achieve the best blend and minimize shedding and pilling for our garments.

We recommend gently combing the inside of the garment with a soft brush will help remove any excess fibers.

Avoid

Washing too often (we recommend washing infrequently, only as needed, to maintain the soft luxurious feel of the garment).

Hanging your garment on a line or clothes horse to dry after washing (as it will distort the fragile fibers and cause the garment to lose its shape).

Do not

  • Tumble dry
  • Bleach

Sneakers:

To keep your sneakers in the best condition we recommend that you follow the below tips:

  • Please avoid using water to clean your grape leather shoes. Water causes leather to shrink and it may dry the grape leather out over time, which can make your shoes stiff and wrinkly.
  • To remove dirt or debris from your shoes, please use a soft-bristled brush.
  • Remove the shoelaces before you clean your shoes to protect them from dirt. If your laces are dirty, please clean them using a washing machine or warm soapy water.
  • To remove stubborn scuffs and marks, please use a leather cleaner and soft brush. Put a small amount of leather cleaner on a soft-bristled brush (please check your chosen leather cleaner instructions first) and gently wipe the surface of the grape leather with the bristles. Work the cleaner into the grape leather by moving the brush back and forth, as if you’re dusting your shoes. Continue brushing until the grape leather is restored to its former glory.
