The team at PlasticFree keep their fingers on the pulse when it comes to innovation in design. On their radar this month is the material science company Pangaia who have launched Fruit Suit, an oversized blazer and trouser set made from repurposed fruit waste. Made with FRUITFIBRE, a Cotton alternative, the suit fabric consists of 20% banana leaf fibre, sourced from agricultural waste, 20% pineapple leaf fibre, and 60% Bamboo Lyocell. The genderless blazer’s lining is made with 100% Cupronickel Bemberg, a cellulose-based fabric. Fruit Suit is available to pre-order HERE.
