Pangaia partner with the world’s leading research institutions, laboratories and scientists to bring to life the latest problem-solving innovations in materials. They introduce 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.
They have just announced the launch of FLWRDWN™ : A fully biodegradable material, created with natural wildflowers and a biopolymer. The alternative to goose down which means you can wear a cruelty free puffer that is good for you and the planet.
“The wild flowers we source are from areas which contribute to habitat restoration, whilst helping to conserve a species of local butterflies. This kind of regenerative agriculture results in a reduction of greenhouse gas production (12 tons of CO2 per hectare of plant material). The method also helps to preserve groundwater, as it doesn’t require irrigation.”
We love this advancement in technology in the fashion industry and want to get our hands on one of these cosy coats too please!
