What makes the textiles bacteria free?

We have partnered up with Polygiene®, who makes one of the most advanced and sustainable silver fabric treatment available. Polygiene® uses low concentrations of silver salt (silver chloride) for its antibacterial properties, which eliminates the growth of odor causing bacteria on the fabric at the source.

Are the products OEKO-TEX® certified?

All products are OEKO-TEX® certified. Our technology partner; Polygiene is both OEKO-TEX® and BlueSign Approved.

Where are the textiles produced?

We produce in Portugal, at factories we know and have visited. We stand for responsible conditions for workers and textiles.

How much CO2 will I save?

It is generally recommended to wash all towels at 60 degrees to kill the bacteria and most people tumble their towels afterwards. Our products only needs to be washed at 30 degrees or less, and can be washed and tumbled much less than regular textiles. With that, we estimate that you can save around 2.000kg of Co2 every year, which is the same as a flight from London to Berlin.

How much water will I save?

Your washing machine uses 44 liters of water everytime you do a load of laundry (@Bolius 2019).As an example; if you are a family of 4, with just 1 load of towels every week, you will save up to 1.800 liters of water every year. Because we don´t think you will wash your towels more than once a month (maybe less), it means you will save at least 75% of your laundry from towels.

What is the best way to break in my towels?

As with any regular towel, our towels have to be broken in to achieve max absorbency. We recommend soaking them for a minimum of 24 hours. Some vinegar can be added to the soak for better result. You might find that you need to wash your towel, once or twice after the soak before they dry optimally.
