WHAT WE SAY:
We love reading about the ‘world’s first...’ especially when it refers to breakthroughs in sustainable materials. Pangaia’s collaboration with Spiber marks the first time that the Japanese biotech’s novel Brewed Protein materials have been available globally, beyond concept pieces.
And while the collection is limited to less than 200 pieces, plant-based synthetics could revolutionise the fashion industry – offering shorter, more ethical and lower impact supply chains. We will be watching closely as Spiber ramps up its production facilities in the coming months.
