Next Level of Street-Smart Clothes: Antimicrobial Fabrics Make a Difference

Posted on

Clothes are part of who we are and an easy way to express ourselves. Antimicrobial fabrics are a way to invest in safety and sustainability without compromising personality.

“We have many requirements for our clothes: style, comfort, sustainability, uniqueness. All of those we’ve combined in our antimicrobial clothes, with the addition of safety”, says Taina Steiner, Founder and Production Design Director of Medanta. 

Antimicrobial clothes are safe to wear: they’re resistant to dirt, oil and contamination, as they stop bacteria from spreading and reproducing on the fabric. Additionally, antimicrobial materials prevent body odors such as sweat.

“All our fabrics – Denim, 4-way, Miro-Jersey and Rewool-touch – are the result of careful planning and product development. No chemicals, dye or heavy metals harmful to the environment are used in the production of the fabrics.

Antimicrobial treatment forms a biologically active surface on the fabric. The surface exterminates bacteria and increases the freshness of the fabric by removing unwanted smells. The treatment doesn’t endanger the fabric’s properties, which makes the clothes durable, elastic and comfortable to wear for years.

Originally, the antimicrobial fabrics were created to be used as professional workwear in for example the healthcare industry. However, their unique properties translate into street-smart clothing that are equal to athletic wear in quality. 

“We collaborate with companies and professionals whose quality requirements are higher than usual. That’s why our antimicrobial fabrics are sustainably produced and perfect for continuous, strenuous use and repeated washing even in high temperatures”, Steiner says. 

“Clothes made of our antimicrobial fabrics are therefore more than just regular clothing. They’re made to fit and elevate our lives: looking great while keeping us safe.”
