Haelixa is a traceability solutions provider who makes it possible for brands and manufacturers to mark and trace products from farm to retail. By creating a unique fingerprint for each party involved, we provide a forensic proof for the origin, authenticity and integrity of products. Our data is highly reliable, because we turn the product itself into the carrier of information about its origin and journey using a marker based on DNA that is solved in liquid and then applied to the product. The marker is harmless for humans and the environment, does not affect the properties of the product and is yet robust enough to withstand all industrial processing.
Integration of Haelixa
The Haelixa solution for textile fibers (i.e. cotton, wool, cashmere, silk, etc.) can easily be integrated into existing automated production processes. The read out can be done with the final product or any intermediate product with a simple test. And the results of the test can be uploaded into existing ERP or blockchain solutions.
What if you could stop used clothes from ending up in dumpsters and instead capture the value of their precious raw materials? Regenerate them into beautiful, new, textile fibers that look and feel like cotton. That’s what Infinited Fiber Company’s technology does. It turns cellulose-rich materials – like old clothes, used carboard, or rice straw – into unique, biodegradable soft fibers: Infinna™.
Founded in Finland in 2016, Infinited Fiber Company is on a mission to make circularity in textiles an everyday reality. The regenerated Infinna™ fiber is currently created out of 100% post-consumer textile waste. It has been proven to work beautifully on its own for 100% regenerated yarns and fabrics and to blend easily with other fibers.
The New Cotton Project
The New Cotton Project is an EU-funded consortium of brands, manufacturers, suppliers, innovators, and research institutes, set to demonstrate and define a blueprint for circular fashion. Infinited Fiber Company is leading the project, which also aims to inspire further, even bigger circular initiatives in the industry.
PANGAIA is a materials science company on a mission to save our environment. We are a global collective of one heart and many minds. This includes scientists, technologists, and designers, working collectively to create essential products from innovative tech and bio-engineered materials.
PANGAIA is a direct-to-consumer brand, but also functions as a B2B company, bringing breakthrough textile innovations and patents into the world, by distributing to brands. Each technology we work with aims to solve an environmental problem of the fashion, apparel and natural industries.
We hope to drive these solutions further by making technologies and materials available to companies across different industries. By introducing these innovations, we design materials, products and experiences for every day and everyone.
We partner with the world’s leading research institutions, laboratories and scientists to bring to life the latest problem-solving innovations in materials science. We pioneer our own breakthrough technology like FLWRDWN™ , employ bio-based fibres, as well as materials made from recycled plastic and garment waste.
Our Italy-based R&D lab is supplemented by unique scientific partnerships with research labs and institutions in Europe, US, Japan and Korea. There, we develop bespoke materials science innovations, which we use for our own direct-to-consumer apparel brand, as well as to supply to other brands.
PYRATES smart fabrics work with our planet’s resources to deliver innovative knit textiles. We focus on producing European made knit fabrics, created with innovative fibres, which make the final fabrics naturally property rich.
PYRATES smart fabrics is an R&D company, and textile supplier. We develop and supply our eco-responsible and quality driven PYRATEX® to other brands through collaborations.
PYRATEX® are luxury knit fabrics made from either vegetal, upcycled or biodegradable fibres. The active components in PYRATEX® fabrics are not injected, nor added, but are naturally occurring in the plants from which we source, and thus neither expire, nor wash away.
PYRATEX® are all knitted in Europe, and we have full traceability of our production chain and techniques and a low distance between each step, resulting in fewer CO2 emissions. In 2019, we received the EU Horizon 2020 grant, confirming our position as an innovative European textile company.
Sense creates new experiences and interactions available on smart devices through “Immaterial Reality,” – an evolution of Augmented Reality characterised by a perfect fusion between physical reality and photorealistic virtual reality. Sense’s mission is to support companies in the digital transformation journey and improve their level of sustainability with innovative technologies. Sense also perfectly simulates the physical behaviour of fabrics and other materials. It allows you to apply an infinite number of patterns and colour variations throughout the virtual prototype with just one click. Fewer physical samples to carry, with a faster and greener fitting phase.
AR & VR Technology
The Sense team has accrued many years’ experience in AR and VR technology, in international industries, and in ‘new digital’ ventures. Sophisticated simulations by Sense create immaterial experiences of coatings, linings, as well as high-end fabrics and luxury textiles for manufacturers, designers, and retailers.
