For us, Black is THE colour - well actually black is the absence of colour. Black is kinda mysterious and typically associated with the unknown. And to us it is more than just is a visually slimming color for clothing and therefore heavily used in the fashion world. Black represents strength, seriousness, power, and authority. Black is formal, elegant, and prestigious, authoritative and powerful, boosting confidence in appearance. Black is associated with power, mystery, strength, elegance, rebellion and sophistication.
After all, black is required for all other colours to have depth and variation of hue.
JOIN THE EVOLUTION OF SPORTSWEAR
All Fe226 sportswear items are anti-bacterial and therefore odour-less. This means that you need to wash them less, and hence you can keep them for longer. This is good for you and good for the environment.
You probably know the feeling; after a few months of training in your apparel, they start to smell. Even after you washed them. This problem is over now. Using Fe226’s odour-less garments, you will feel much better both during training (especially if you exercise in company), and after training an commuting, when you hang your garments to dry either at home or at work/school.
Longer lasting textiles
Feeling (smelling) better is not the only advantage of Fe226’s odour-less garments. It also means, that instead of washing your garments after each exercise, you can rinse under water and hang it up to dry, thereby reducing washing to every 3-4 times you use it. And with less washing and less bacterial growth, your garments also last longer, so you can buy less. Good for your wallet and good for the environment.
Reduced environmental impact
In sports apparel, our use of a garment stands for the 50-70% of total carbon emission. Using an odour-less product more than once before washing drastically reduces the environmental impact of the garment. Water and energy are saved, CO2 is reduced and the amount of microplastics can also be significantly reduced. It all starts by washing less. Studies show, that if you use an anti-bacterial garment for just nine months longer, you will reduce water usage by close to 20%, carbon dioxide emissions by more than 15% and waste by 8% compared to a normal sportswear item.
PS.: An additional fun-fact: Skipping one wash load per week, will save you three days in a year – not bad, in these busy times, right?
