Pangaia launches PANhemp™, a range of hemp and organic cotton denim. Building the brand’s mission to use technology to expand innovation and inclusivity in lifestyle products, on November 11, PANGAIA introduced PANhemp™ on the new unspun app, the technology-enabled platform that creates denim made to order, made to fit, and made to last.
The sustainability-focused materials science and apparel company partnered with Jonathan Cheung – former Levi’s designer – to develop the collection’s exclusive 13-ounce denim in partnership with Turkish denim mill Orta.
This custom jeans line is fully made from rain-fed hemp and organic cotton, and select washes in the collection are dyed with natural indigo. The fabric is then woven inversely to create the brand’s signature left-hand twill, which gives a strong yet soft to the touch and comfortable to wear fabric.
Pangaia treats the fabrics with PPRMINT oil, a robust odor control finish and antimicrobial treatment that helps clothes feel fresher for longer.
The PANHemp denim collection includes straight-leg jeans, a cropped denim jacket, women’s high-rise wide-leg jeans and a denim shearling jacket available in three washes, including flamingo pink. The shearling jacket is made from recycled wool and Tencel fabric.
Beth Esponnette, Unspun Co-Founder said, “This is a powerhouse collaboration between a beautiful product made of dreamy, environmentally-friendly materials and technology that brings fashion into the next century. [Unspun] has not found a partner more aligned in its values to protect the earth and save humanity than Pangaia.”
Pangaia is determined to eliminate overproduction and waste. They also benefit from designer Cheung’s vast denim experience.
