Jackets and coats utilize advanced fabrics

Advanced Textiles, Products | December 1, 2008 | By:

Grade Zero Espace, Florence, Italy, is the research and development department of Cove Nove, with the mission to develop new materials and technologies to improve quality of life, work and the environment. The Hinoki LS jacket and coat endeavor to redefine natural fibers using ‘Hinoki,’ a genus of conifers native to eastern Asia, whose processed bark gives a lemon-scented fabric with antibacterial and insect-repellent properties. The Quota Zero Jacket uses the latest advanced fabrics to create a comfort zone and excellent thermal insulation for the wearer engaged in physical activity under extreme cold weather conditions. An extremely thin, strong and durable shape memory membrane provides protection against wind and water; bioelastic fabric conforms to body contours to ensure freedom of movement; Aerogel, a highly insulating, lightweight silicon dioxide, is inserted into areas requiring maximum thermal insulation.
