Clothing which does not stain or crease needs finance to expand
26 July 2019 @ 21:23

A 'SMART clothing' creator with an annual turnover of €600,000 is seeking sponsorship to expand the business after having invented a collection which does not crease and which repels dirt.

Sepiia, a label designed by Federico Sainz Robles, currently only includes shirts and polo shirts for men and women, but this is likely to extend if finance is forthcoming – in the first year, the firm reported a turnover of €300,000 and, thanks to a cash injection of €192,000, has managed to double that, or gain a return on this investment of €108,000.

The fabric used to make the shirts is, Sainz Robles describes, 'similar to the skin on a peach or a lotus flower', or a very fine fur-like texture, 'but microscopic', so that this is not obvious to the naked eye.

As a result, any fluids which land on it do not expand but remain on the surface, or on the tip of the tiny strands of 'hair', and can be brushed off once dry.

This fabric does not need ironing, either, does not 'store' odour or accumulate sweat marks, and is elastic and breathable.

All sounds very good but to obtain these qualities in the cloth the garments are made from has to be from synthetic material which usually involves some form of plastic. Do we really need to increase the amount of plastic on top of what we already have polluting the world.
