If you’ve been on Instagram in the past year, you’ve probably seen someone in a Pangaia sweatsuit. Their vibrant colors have been seen on everyone from Kourtney Kardashian and Bella Hadid to Pharrell Williams and Jaden Smith (who teamed up with the brand on a collaborative drop). In other words, you’re more likely to see a celeb wearing Pangaia at some point than not.

Pangaia was founded by a team of scientists. It’s no wonder, then, that since their inception in 2018, they’ve used advanced materials and technologies to create products from lab grown, recycled, and natural materials. The brand is committed to a zero-waste circular system–a lofty goal–but that’s extremely important to shoppers committed to purchasing ethically.
