Materials science company Pangaia has launched its latest innovation in partnership with Evrnu’s NuCycl, a fibre created from pre and post-consumer textile waste.
- Pangaia Lab has used NuCycl to create the oversized 'Renu' denim jacket—its first denim product made entirely from cotton textile waste and also the first completely crafted from NuCycl.
- The limited-edition 'Renu' jacket is available for $400 on Pangaia's website from today.
- Pangaia Lab is the company's innovation hub, bringing cutting-edge technology to consumer items so that people may wear the future now.
What's Novel: Evrnu’s NuCycl helps divert textile waste away from landfill and incineration and reduces the industry’s reliance on cotton, manmade cellulosic fibres (MMCF), nylon, and polyester.
- Using pre and post-consumer textile waste, Evrnu has crafted a fibre that is up to four times stronger than other cellulosic fibres including cotton and most MMCF and can be recycled up to five times without loss in performance or quality.
- Unlike mechanically recycled cotton, NuCycl does not need to be blended with any virgin fibre and allows more recycling cycles, making it a significantly less resource-intensive alternative to cotton or polyester.
What They Said:
Evrnu represents the very best of innovation, in the space of recycled fibres. 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.
