The World's first NuCycl® denim jacket
MADE ENTIRELY FROM TEXTILE WASTE
PANGAIA Lab is the discovery platform within PANGAIA, bringing advanced technology to lifestyle goods, making it possible for people to wear the future, now. The partnership with Evrnu was born through a mutual mission to find replacements for high resource fibers such as cotton, and to harness the value of materials already in circulation, rather than fossil fuel, animal-derived, or virgin fibers. The ‘RENU’ jacket marks the world’s first denim product entirely made from NuCycl®.
“Evrnu represents the very best of innovation, in the space of recycled fibers. We have been on a long journey together as partners and we are delighted to be bringing out our first product together, demonstrating the extraordinary potential for superior quality from recycling technologies.“ - Dr. Amanda Parkes, Chief Innovation Officer
EVRNU’s NuCycl® Technology
EVRNU’s NuCycl® is a fiber created from pre- and post-consumer textile waste. It is up to 4 times stronger than other cellulosic fibers including cotton and most MMCF and can be recycled up to 5 times without loss in performance or quality. Using NuCycl® helps divert textile waste away from landfill and incineration and reduces the industry’s reliance on cotton, MMCF, nylon, and polyester.
Unlike mechanically recycled cotton, NuCycl® does not need to be blended with any virgin fiber and allows more recycling cycles, making it a significantly less resource intensive alternative to cotton or polyester.
“We are thrilled to partner with PANGAIA which shares our drive to unlock the future of materials and technology for the fashion industry,” says Stacy Flynn, Evrnu CEO & Co-Founder. “Our mission is to help brands create clothing out of recycled materials that are not only of the highest quality but can also continue to be recycled. We are delighted by the growing market demand for NuCycl.”
The ‘RENU’ jacket is part of the PANGAIA modern wardrobe - with an oversized fit, it is intended to be styled over a hoodie. With this limited launch, PANGAIA’s signature material textblock is replaced with the edition number of the jacket.
Starting February 16th, the RENU Jacket will be available for $400 on PANGAIA.com.
