About the Company
Pangaia is a private materials science company that brings textile innovations directly to the consumer. The company aims to solve environmental problems in the fashion industry through the development of sustainable materials, treatments, and dyes in partnerships with researchers in Europe, Japan, Korea, and the United States.
FLWRDWN™ is the product of 10 years of research and development. Using Pangaia’s proprietary technology, this biopolymer is created from flowers and infused with a cellulose-based aerogel for increased durability. FLWRDWN is a fully biodegradable, hypoallergenic, and animal-free alternative to duck and goose down.
Pangaia’s patent covers the production method of flower, biopolymer, and aerogel to create FLWRDWN. The aerogel, made of 85% recycled paper, increases thermal insulation and water resistance.
Pangaia’s puffer jacket uses their FLWRDWN as filling (80% biopolymer, 20% vegetable fiber).The shell and lining are 100% recycled nylon and polyester, respectively.
