We start by applying a hydrophobic nanotechnology application to our Chef Jackets and Aprons that increases it's repellency to water and stains.
It modifies the fabric at a molecular level by permanently attaching nano-sized ‘whiskers’ to individual fibers which elevate liquids, causing them to bead up and turn into spheres that roll off the fabric surface.
We embed this technology into our Chef Jackets and Aprons when we produce the cotton from scratch. It has no effect on fabric comfort, look ,feel, breathability or elasticity and means a lot longer lasting application.
Inspired by nature
The fabric can be made to repel water like the lotus flower does in nature by minimizing the adhesion of the fabric's surface.
Nanoparticles alter the material to a much higher degree of water and stain resistance without interfering with the weave’s breathability.
