Pangaia has adopted an original approach ever since it was launched in 2018. More than a brand, the eco-sustainable label has styled itself as a materials science company organised around a collective of scientists, designers, engineers and artists. Until now, Pangaia has opted for an international dimension, with hubs in London, Florence and New York. Its aim is to develop an essentially streetwear range by using the most sustainable materials possible, with the goal of making their use in apparel production more widespread, and more rapidly so.
