PANGAIA And Evrnu Release The NuCycl® Denim Jacket Made Entirely From Textile Waste

NEW YORK CITY — February 13, 2023 — This Thursday, February 16, materials Science Brand PANGAIA will release its latest innovation through PANGAIA Lab. Made from textile innovations company Evrnu’s NuCycl®, the RENU jacket marks a pivotal moment in the brand’s journey of material innovation as it’s the company’s first denim product made entirely from cotton textile waste.

PANGAIA Lab is the discovery platform within PANGAIA, bringing advanced technology to lifestyle goods, making it possible for people to wear the future, now. The partnership with Evrnu was born through a mutual mission to find replacements for high resource fibers such as cotton, and to harness the value of materials already in circulation, rather than fossil fuel, animal-derived, or virgin fibers.

“Evrnu represents the very best of innovation, in the space of recycled fibers. 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,” said Dr. Amanda Parkes, chief innovation officer.

EVRNU’s NuCycl® Technology

EVRNU’s NuCycl is a fiber created from pre- and post-consumer textile waste. It is up to  four times stronger than other cellulosic fibers including cotton and most MMCF and can be recycled up to five times without loss in performance or quality. Using NuCycl helps divert textile waste away from landfill and incineration and reduces the industry’s reliance on cotton, MMCF, nylon, and polyester.

Unlike mechanically recycled cotton, NuCycl does not need to be blended with any virgin fiber and allows more recycling cycles, making it a significantly less resource intensive alternative to cotton or polyester.

“We are thrilled to partner with PANGAIA which shares our drive to unlock the future of materials and technology for the fashion industry,” said Stacy Flynn, Evrnu CEO and co-founder. “Our mission is to help brands create clothing out of recycled materials that are not only of the highest quality but can also continue to be recycled. We are delighted by the growing market demand for NuCycl.”

The RENU jacket is part of the PANGAIA modern wardrobe — with an oversized fit, it is intended to be styled over a hoodie. With this limited launch, PANGAIA’s signature material textblock is replaced with the edition number of the jacket.
