Antimicrobial textiles are proven to resist harmful bacteria by up to 99.9%. This inbuilt protection means fabrics benefiting from our antimicrobial treatments are less susceptible to staining, bad odors and degradation. Research has also shown that antimicrobial textiles maintain high levels of antibacterial performance for their expected lifetime, making them ideal for manufacturers of sportswear, hospital scrubs, bedding, technical fabrics, workwear and a range of other textile products.


Aktive Cooling is a revolutionary textile technology that provides fabrics with the ability to interact with body temperature and dynamically respond to body heat. The cooling function is activated when you are hot and sweaty and deactivated once cooling is complete, which ensures optimal comfort and performance.


Unsurprisingly, fashion has an important role to play when it comes to the climate crisis, not least because it is the industry responsible for up to 10% of the planet’s greenhouse gas emissions. The year 2022 is bringing important trends to make fashion more sustainable, although we still have a long way to go. In this post, we selected 3 of them. Do you believe these transformations are enough? How could the fashion industry contribute more positively to our planet? Tell us in the comments.
