Sewn eager path

This special T-shirt consists of two parts: the basic material, which is everywhere against your skin, and the special sweat blocking material. The latter is sewn in the armpit between two layers of basic material. For the curious viewers, I have a photo of an open cut armpit here:

The sweat blocking material largely consists of BambooViscose. The thin layer feels very sturdy - you feel that nothing can go through it.

The basic material largely consists of theModalfabric of the famous Austrian companyLens. The modal fabric is extracted from beech wood and processed into the final form cellulose. In addition to its good breathable function, the modal fabric is also wonderfully soft. People often say that modal has the best of cotton and silk. The basic material further contains a small part spandex, making the T-shirt its stretch properties.

Improvements to the substance

During recent years, several people have shared feedback about this shirt. There are three questions that occur regularly:

1.       How does it come that the substance will fluff fairly quickly?
2.       In the summer the shirt is hot. Can you do something about it?
3.       Can the shirt also remove sweat scent?

During our annual visit to the factory in China, we have found a solution to these three questions together with the textile expert. Before we come there, first something about the causes.

The causes

The expert managed to tell us that fluff emerges faster with fabrics with short fibers. In our case the modal fabric is just a substance with short fiber. Cotton just has a little longer fiber and therefore fluff quickly.

The solution
After various considerations, the expert came up with the brilliant proposal to solve these two problems in one go. How? By weaving a mix of modal and cotton. This new fabric mix - also a scoop for the manufacturer - has longer fibers on the one hand, which prevents fluff less quickly, and on the other hand can be executed more thinner. This will make the shirt a lot cooler in the summer.

Finally we discussed various options to neutralize the sweat odor. The 'sweat odor' is caused by thatbacteria, fat and other substances from the skin tallow and sweat convert into smelly components. If that must be prevented, the bacteria must therefore be killed. There are different methods to do that in the textile industry. We are going to apply a silver treatment in the armpit. The substance therefore receives elements that compete against the bacteria and the sweat odor is reduced.
