European Fashion Brand Releases Vegan Down Jacket Made From Flowers And Recycled Plastic(TotallyVega


Fashion brand Pangaia has released a capsule collection of puffer jackets stuffed with wildflowers instead of geese feathers.

Eco-friendly apparel brand Pangaia is known to use seaweed fiber, natural dyes made from plants, fruits and vegetables, flower down, and recycled materials to create high-end modern products in order to make its label as sustainable as possible.

It took the company over 10 years of laboratory research to make the vegan material- FLWRDWN- a trademarked, cruelty-free alternative to goose and duck feathers.

Pangaia has used a blend of natural wild flowers, a biopolymer and aerogel to create the warm, fluffy, certified hypoallergenic, durable, breathable, and 100% biodegradable winter jacket.

Speaking on the sustainability of using wildflowers for the down, the brand stated: “The wild flowers we source are from areas which contribute to habitat restoration, whilst helping to conserve a species of local butterflies.

“This kind of regenerative agriculture results in a reduction of greenhouse gas production (12 tons of CO2 per hectare of plant material). The method also helps to preserve groundwater, as it doesn’t require irrigation.”

“It’s great to recycle bottles and get them out of the oceans, but the problem with turning them into textiles is that they still give off microplastics [in your laundry],” explained Parkes

“That’s why we try to avoid them in our products, but there are a lot of things that we don’t have a good industry solution for yet.”
