Pangaia expanded its Motion collection “Empowered by Plants,” which launched last fall, to include a new capsule collection for men and additional colorways for women.

The Pangaia Motion collection is the brand’s “most bio-based offering,” with “99.99 percent plant-based Evo Nylon and 30 percent plant-based creora spandex, the first of its kind.” The activewear’s updated design includes seamless shapes for a second skin feel with “gentle” compression.

The Motion collection features for Men the Motion Mesh T-shirt, Motion Zipped Long Sleeve Top and Motion Tights in volcanic grey and black. The women’s collection includes the Motion Sports Bra, Motion Ribbed Tank Top, Motion T-Shirt, Motion Shorts, Motion Leggings offered in new taupe and cobalt blue, black, foliage green, and cerulean blue.

“We are thrilled to see such a fabulous reaction to Pangaia’s plant-based Motion collection,” said Claire O’Neill, Hyosung European marketing manager. “It is a true testimony to the fact that consumers are making more sustainable choices when it comes to their apparel purchases. We look forward to our continued collaboration with such an innovative and passionate brand whose aim is to give back to the planet more than it takes.”

Pangaia was the “first brand to introduce creora bio-based spandex in an activewear range globally.” The yarn is SGS-certified, “guaranteeing that it is made with plant-based materials and produced in an eco-friendly environment.” According to a recent third-party LCA, “the manufacture of creora bio-based spandex reduces its carbon footprint by 20 percent compared to conventional spandex production.”
