Back in 2018 when we decided to be more environmentally conscious by design and manufacture sustainably, we knew we'd have to be prepared to make a lot of hard decisions and adjustments. First on our list was to find the best sustainable fabrics, for an active lifestyle, that we could get our hands on.
Along the way we've learned a lot 🎓
We searched high and low before we finally found fabric manufacturers and factories that had the same vision as us and the first sustainable collection came to life. We totally fell in love with sustainable performance fabrics and how they make an active lifestyle more efficient and comfortable, we just knew you would love them too!
So what is the hype about performance fabrics?
The first performance fabric was made for furniture upholstery and was both easy to clean and could withstand wear and tear. Since then performance fabrics have been developed for sports with many additional qualities such as quick drying, squat proof, four-way stretch, compression and much more.
A well designed performance fabric will support you in your activity - you'll be wondering how you could ever live without it. If you are highly active and always on the go or if you don't think that spending your time doing laundry is a priority, sweat-wicking and quick drying fabrics are life savers.
Did you know 💡
-Quick drying and sweat-wicking fabrics are your best companion during strenuous activities as they work to keep you cool! This is especially true if you are doing strenuous activities in hot and humid conditions.
"If you've gotta think about being cool, you ain't cool." -Keith Richards
Quick Drying Performance Fabrics
One of the reasons why we love quick drying performance fabrics is because of their ability to protect the body from high humidity levels. Quick drying performance fabrics are unique in the way they help to enhance performance by protecting muscles from heat and exertion. This way you will be able to achieve more during your favourite activities.
If you are a frequent traveller, ✈ clothes made from performance fabrics are great as trustworthy travel companions, as they dry really fast. Just give them a quick wash and hang to dry and you have a fresh piece of clothing to wear the next day and you don't have to travel with dirty laundry in the baggage anymore.
How does it work?
These amazing quick drying performance fabrics guarantee you a much higher comfort level when exercising as they help regulate your body temperature. When you exercise the heart rate rises which in return increase the production of perspiration. This amazing fabric acts as a sponge for moisture, pulling the perspiration to the outer layers of the garment, away from the skin. When the moisture gets in contact with the air it speeds up the evaporation process decreasing your body heat, as the liquid sweat is transformed into water vapour, heat is absorbed leaving you feeling cool and comfortable.
"The best time to do laundry is later"
So how fast does a quick drying performance fabrics take before it's dry?
If you wash your garment by hand a quick drying fabric should go from damp to dry within 30 minutes and if you wash your garment by hand it should go from wet to dry within 2 hours. 👚
