Our Top Technologies
Polygiene - fresh for life
The antimicrobial odor-free treatment for apparel that helps you stay fresher longer.
LONGER LASTING: Polygiene treated apparel stay fresh longer than untreated workout clothes. By washing and drying your clothes less frequently you can prolong the lifespan of your garments and make a positive contribution to the environment.
Wear More, Wash Less: Polygiene treated textiles do not need to be washed as often, which saves water, energy, time, and money as well as improve the lifespan of a product. Washing a garment after each use is not always necessary. By wearing your garments more and for longer they will last longer you will reduce your environmental footprint.
Anti-Microbial: Polygiene uses low concentrations of naturally occurring silver salt (silver chloride) made from recycled silver, a highly effective antimicrobial agent, to safely inhibit the growth of odour-causing bacteria and fungi. Polygiene prevents the growth of odour-causing bacteria and fungi at the source, permanently.
Odor Prevention: Polygiene prevents the growth of odour-causing bacteria and fungi at the source. Polygiene is only active on the textiles itself and does not interfere with your skin’s natural bacterial flora. Polygiene odour control will not wash out as the technology is bound and permanently integrated in the fabric.
Dope dyeing is a production technique to colour synthetic fibres such as acrylic, nylon and polyester. In dope dyeing, pigments are added to the liquid polymer solution before synthetic fibres are extruded.
Recycled Organic Cotton
Not only is cotton one of the most widely grown crops worldwide, but conventional cotton is also one of the most chemical-intensive. Causing a significant impact on the air, water, soil and overall health of the people in cotton-growing areas, these harmful chemicals are often toxic, as classified by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency). Grown without the use of toxic pesticides or synthetic fertilizers and harvested sustainably, organic cotton uses methods and materials that have a significantly lower impact on the environment.
