Pangaia launches new ACTIVEWEAR 3.0 collection using bio-based materials

November 24, 2022 |

In the UK, Pressat reported that materials science brand Pangaia has chosen EVO bio-based yarn by Fulgar for the launch of its new Activewear 3.0 collection.

“The activewear sector generally uses materials with entirely petro-chemical origins, reflecting a need for significant benefits in moisture absorption and performance. However, the introduction of a greater number of bio-based materials means we’ve been able to replace fossil fuels with renewable resources. This is the choice we’ve made for Pangaia’s Activewear 3.0 collection. Our partnership with Fulgar and the use of EVO yarn has enabled us to create a new generation of sustainable, high-performance activewear”, said Amanda Parkes, chief innovation officer at Pangaia.

EVO by Fulgar yarn is obtained from castor oil, a renewable and sustainable resource. The castor oil plant, in fact, grows in arid regions, does not require large amounts of water areas and does not take up land that where food crops can be grown. The biomass from which EVO by Fulgar is formed by castor oil seed and the monomers used in the polymerization process are partially or totally derived from castor oil.
