TechnologiesWe 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 breakthrough vegan technologies like wild flower down, use bio-based fibers like seaweed yarn, as well as materials made from recycled plastic and garment waste.
The natural fibre we use is derived from saltwater seaweed. It grows abundantly in a natural ocean habitat, avoiding the use of land, water and pesticides in traditional farming. The fibre created is lightweight and absorbs moisture faster than cotton and retains some of its 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.
Over 100 billion items of clothing are being produced every year. Half of it goes to landfills and takes decades to decompose. Over 500 billion plastic bottles are being produced every year. By 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish. All textile and plastic waste can be recycled, turned into a yarn and reused over and over again. We develop products made of post consumer recycled materials and plastic bottles. It does not just look good, but most importantly feels good too.
The alternative to goose down. Cruelty free material VeganTech is made from natural, dried wild flowers. It’s taken over 10 years to develop this breakthrough vegan material which makes you feel warm.
Every PANGAIA product comes in TIPA packaging, a bio-based, plastic alternative which fully disappears within 24 weeks in your compost bin.
