For its latest drop, materials science brand PANGAIA launches the Re-color capsule using the innovative technology from Officina+39. The collection features the staple 365 sweatshirts and sweatpants drenched in bright pastels using Recycrom technology. A patented dyestuff from the Italian textile chemical company, the biodegradable process takes recycled fibers and transforms them into a fine powder that can be used as a pigment dye. The result? Recycrom enables the new Re-color collection with little environmental impact.
When PANGAIA began to manufacture the capsule, Officina+39 seemed like a natural fit. Similar to PANGAIA, the textile company combines a mission statement of passion, transparency, and social responsibility. With extensive research and chemical testing, (over the last 30 years!) Officina+39 has become the latest supplier for sustainable brands and their need for chemical specialties, dyestuffs, and pigments.
The Recycrom technology used for this collection is made from PANGAIA waste. Adaptable to any materials, the revolutionary dye can be used for cotton, wool, nylon, and much more. The dyes are crafted in a state-of-the-art application laboratory, making Officina+39 an ideal collaborator for brands looking to reduce pigment remains. Combining this with PANGAIA’s pursuit to save the environment, the Re-color capsule brings essential products that are versatile and earth positive.
Now let’s take a closer look at the collection’s modern facets. The Re-color capsule presents heritage PANGAIA styles that are finished off with the colorful dyes. Each article highlights the emblematic phrase, “this item is colored using a technology that recycles our textile waste into new colors.”
Re-color is testament to the brand’s commitment to circularity, taking strides in closing the loop on PANGAIA material offcut waste. When it comes to dyes, the textile industry often requires lots of water in addition to using detrimental chemicals. In contrast, Re-color demonstrates beautiful shades as a result of eco-conscious practices, and brings further encouragement for brands to drop harsh chemical processes.
The palette for Re-color ranges from Aloe Green, to Sky Blue, Apricot, Coral Pink, and Banana. These hues pair effortlessly with the minimal designs crafted by PANGAIA. The oversized hoodie and fitted track pants have a relaxed fit for day to day use. A Re-color T-shirt and shorts make a subtle combination for any occasion.
The Re-color collection is available on August 4 at pangaia.com.
