PANGAIA's New Capsule Collection Was Dyed Using Food Waste

Extracting color from ingredients like matcha, rooibos, and blueberry.

Materials science brand PANGAIA recently launched a new capsule collection comprised of its signature 365 sweatshirts and sweatpants, but this time, each garment has been expertly dyed using food waste. The new innovation is a continuation of the brand’s ongoing efforts to develop sustainable dye solutions, offering alternatives that are less water intensive and require no harmful chemicals.

Developed with Japanese company Toyoshima & Co, the responsible food dye technology utilizes food waste from food companies, farms and coffee houses in order to create a unique dye solution. Color is extracted from the food residue and applied directly to the yarn, minimizing waste in the process. With a focus on ingredients like Matcha, Rooibos and Blueberry, the new capsule boasts a muted, neutral color palette of light greens, oranges and purples.

The Food Dye capsule comes shortly after PANGAIA released its Re-Color capsule, where the brand utilized its offcuts to create dyes. Furthering its commitment to innovation, PANGAIA is set to introduce five new plant-based fabrics including  FLWRDWN Lite made from wildflowers, PANettle (a selvedge denim blend made from Himalayan nettle), hemp-based material PANhemp and FRUTFIBER, which repurposes banana leaf fiber, pineapple leaf fiber and bamboo into a new, innovative fabric.

Its final offering is PLNTFIBER, a blend of four fast-growing plants that do not require pesticides, fertilizers, or irrigation, including Himalayan nettle fiber, bamboo lyocell and eucalyptus lyocell embedded with seaweed.

Take a look at the new capsule above, now available for purchase from PANGAIA’s website.
