PANGAIA and Spiber launch

Swatches | August 1, 2022 | By:

Materials science company PANGAIA, based in London, England, introduced the fourth capsule within PANGAIA Lab, a limited-edition sweatshirt made in partnership with Japanese biomaterials manufacturing group Spiber Inc., featuring breakthrough biotech Brewed Protein™fibers and organic cotton. 

Spiber’s Brewed Protein materials are made from plant-derived biomass and a proprietary fermentation process that produces a biological building block that can be sculpted for different applications. The polymers can be transformed into a variety of forms, from delicate filament fibers with a silky sheen, to spun yarns that have cashmere-like softness, or the thermal and moisture-wicking properties of wool. 

Large-scale production is expected to produce significantly lower greenhouse gas emissions and require less land and water use than traditional animal-derived fibers such as cashmere.
