It’s a good day for workout warriors — and their nearby partners-in-sweat. Cotton Incorporated recently announced its alliance with PurThread. Under the union, cotton knit and woven fabrics will have its antimicrobial technology embedded, which protects against odor-causing bacteria.
PurThread has cultivated technology that integrates EPA-registered recycled silver salts into staple fiber and filament yarn at the extrusion level, according to the announcement. “This lends permanent fabric protection from odor-causing bacteria, mold, mildew and fungus, yielding antimicrobial benefits that do not wash away or wear off for the life of the fabric,” the company said. In even better news for brands and retailers: The technology does not affect physical properties or the characteristics of the fabric. It provides uniform colors while enforcing antiodor properties.
