KANGHYUK Crafts Sustainable Skiwear Using Leftover Airbags

Recycled materials provided by Hyosung, one of South Korea’s largest industrial conglomerates.

Industrial conglomerate Hyosung has joined forces with KANGHYUK to recycle its leftover airbags. Using the waste materials, the rising Korean label has crafted a collection of sustainable skiwear.

Provided exclusively to KANGHYUK, the repurposed fabric – enough to make around 700 jackets – comes from airbags that couldn’t be sold due to sizing issues. Designed for all genders, the collection boasts a minimal white shade overall. Standouts include a bulky parka highlighted with barcode details, as well as ski pants contrasted with blue top-stitches. In womenswear, the tech-focused range additionally features outerwear pieces with waistband detailing for a defined silhouette. The designs are rounded out with Hyosung’s logo stamped onto the front.

See the full lineup above. The Hyosung x KANGHYUK skiwear collection will be available for pre-order from May 17 to 31, with shipping starting on October 27. Head to the fashion label’s website for more information.
