Introducing new men’s capsule collection and added colourways for women

May 31, 2023: Seoul, South Korea and New York, NY – Upon the success of Motion, a collection empowered by plants that launched last fall, purpose-driven materials science brand PANGAIA has expanded the range to include a new capsule collection for men and additional colourways for women.

The PANGAIA Motion collection is the brand’s most bio-based offering to date that’s made with 99.99% plant-based EVO® Nylon and 30 percent plant-based creora® elastane, the first of its kind. The activewear has an updated look and feel with seamless shapes offering comfort and stretch -designed to feel like a second skin with gentle compression.

The Motion collection features the Men’s Motion Mesh T-shirt, Men’s Motion Zipped Long Sleeve Top and Men’s Motion Tights offered in volcanic grey and black. The women’s collection includes the Women’s Motion Sports Bra, Women’s Motion Ribbed Tank Top, Women’s Motion T-Shirt, Women’s Motion Shorts and Women’s Motion Leggings offered in new taupe and cobalt blue, in addition to back, foliage green, and cerulean blue.

“We are thrilled to see such a fabulous reaction to PANGAIA’s plant-based Motion collection,” said Claire O’Neill, Hyosung European Marketing Manager. “It is a true testimony to the fact that consumers are making more sustainable choices when it comes to their apparel purchases. We look forward to our continued collaboration with such an innovative and passionate brand whose aim is to give back to the planet more than it takes.”

PANGAIA was the first brand to globally introduce creora® bio-based elastane in an activewear range.  The yarn is SGS certified guaranteeing that it is made with plant-based materials and produced in an eco-friendly environment. According to a recent third-party LCA, the manufacture of creora® bio-based elastane reduces its carbon footprint by 20 percent as compared to the production of conventional elastane.

The PANGAIA Motion collection is available online at Hyosung will have pieces of the PANGAIA Motion collection on display at its Outdoor Retailer Show booth # 30097 taking place June 19-21 in Salt Lake City, UT.
