Welcome to PANGAIA Gym, Where Activewear Is Made From Plants
PANGAIA is taking its sustainability approach to the gym. The environment-friendly brand recently launched its first-ever workout collection, combining technology and textile innovation with eco-design that’s ready for any sweat session you have planned.
PANGAIA Activewear consists of 31 men’s and women’s pieces, including leggings, bike shorts, sports bras, shirts, hoodies and jumpsuits, all created with castor beans, seaweed and eucalyptus. The brand has no plans to compromise its stance on synthetic materials for the new line as it features: a biobased nylon; a moisture evaporating, 100% biocarbon wicking treatment made from microalgae called miDori bioWick; odor control and antibacterial natural oil finish called PPRMINT; and its trademark C-FIBER biobased and biodegradable material.
In typical PANGAIA fashion, the line is available across six versatile colors: ranging from vibrant hues like orchid purple and flamingo pink, to Earthier colors like rosemary green, black, navy and stone grey.
Activewear continues to be a growing category in apparel with staple brands like Nike and Lululemon leading the charge. Then there’s newcomers branching out into tech-infused items like Outdoor Voices or introducing activity specific clothing like Alo Yoga.
According to Pangaia, 76% of its customers have asked for an activewear line, and as the saying goes – ask and you shall receive. Earlier this year, the brand also introduced a line of 100% organic cotton jersey leggings, bike shorts, and turtlenecks called PANGAIA Move. While Move focuses on positioning easy-to-wear items as everyday essentials, Activewear is created for direct use in yoga, weightlifting, cardio, cycling, and other related activities.
“We have a very engaged community from whom we continue to learn and receive feedback about our products as well as questions about the introduction of new categories,” Pangaia told Observer. “Activewear is a consistent request from our customers and the launch of Pangaia Gym is our first step towards our end goal of providing activewear products that are fully bio-based and more circular.”
