Discover our Technologies

We partner with the world’s leading research institutions, laboratories and scientists to bring to life the latest problem-solving innovations in materials science through our products. We pioneer our own breakthrough technology like FLWRDWN™, use bio-based fibers like yarn, as well as materials made from recycled plastic and garment waste.

Our Internal research and development lab is in Italy, supplemented by unique scientific partnership with research labs and institutions in Europe, USA, Japan and Korea. There, we create and develop bespoke materials science innovations.

 

Seaweed fiber
This fibre is derived from saltwater seaweed which grows abundantly in a natural ocean habitat. This avoids traditional farming aggressors such as the use of pesticides, excessive water and land. The fibre created is lightweight, absorbs moisture faster than cotton and retains some active algae nutrients. At the end of the garment’s life, it biodegrades seamlessly.

 

Peppermint oil treatment
Natural, plant-originated textile treatment uses peppermint oil as its main active ingredient and has an antibacterial effect. We use it as a finishing treatment on our fabric to keep your garment fresher for longer: your t-shirt needs to be washed less often, saving water, energy and time.

 

Flower down
FLWRDWN™ is a fully biodegradable material, created with natural​ wild flowers, a biopolymer and infused with aerogel for performance and durability. Our ​proprietary ​technology​ ​has taken our scientists​ ​10 years​ ​of in-​lab​ research and development. It is the ​warm​, ​breathable​, ​hypoallergenic​ and ​cruelty-free​ alternative to goose and duck down — kind to your skin, as well as your planet.

FLWRDWN™ is a registered PANGAIA patent.

Botanical dyes
The natural dyes we use are created from food waste and natural resources. Plants, fruits and vegetables help to achieve rich hues and beautiful tones. We dye textiles in a way which uses less water, is non-toxic and biodegradable.

 

Organic Cotton
Regular cotton requires more water, pesticides and degrades the soil over time. Instead, we only use organic, made from natural seeds and without pesticides or other harmful chemicals. As a result, organic cotton products are safer for both our skin, and our earth.

Recycled materials
Over 100BN items of clothing and 500BN plastic bottles are being produced every year. Half goes to landfill, taking decades to decompose. All textile and plastic waste can be recycled, turned into a yarn and reused repeatedly. We develop products made of post-consumer recycled materials and plastic bottles. It does not only look good, but most importantly, feels good.

 

Compostable packaging
Every PANGAIA product is encased by TIPA packaging, a part bio-based, plastic alternative which fully disappears within 24 weeks in a compost facility.
