Welcome to the fabric of the future

Welcome to the fabric of the future.

  Copper infused polyester fiber 

If you ever read the benefits of drinking out of a copper mug imagine wearing it. The benefits of the compression include pain relief, muscle healing, and improved blood flow, while decreasing inflammation and swelling.

The qualifying points of metal-infused fabric is the internal production of electro-less on different types of fabric materials. The line has the possibility of covering every single fiber with a coating such as copper which is stable against corrosion and has a good shielding value.

 Currently the available fabrics and materials of different types are coated in metal. The line permits the values of electrical conductivity from 100 millioms squared and up, to be obtained.

Materials

Standard fabrics are static clean,  polyester that have weights that range from 60 to 150 grams per square metre after being metal coated. The proportion of pure nickel varies from 12 to 35 grams of metal per square metric.

These fabrics behave differently when exposed to electromagnetic fields and are characterised. In addition, compared  to competitive products, by the following advantageous reasons:

  • High resistance to corrosion due to the lack of copper
  • Stability of the superficial resistance value
  • Resistance of conductivity even under repeated mechanical or abrasive action and repeated bending.
  • Good shielding from low magnetic field frequencies and from those of up to 18 Ghz
  • Good mechanical resistance to traction and tearing.

This being premised, the fabrics that are metallised may not only be polyester but also of  CARBON fiber, nomex, kevlar and polyamides. These fabrics have been tested to evaluate their different properties such as electromagnetic shielding, their bending in relationship to their endurance; these tests as per precise regulations are available.

Presently we are working on the evolution of deposition of other metals on fabric structures, such as SnO MgO e TiO2.

Applications

The evolution of fabrics as structures and of the fibres that make up their electrical and mechanical performance give hope for an evolution of products beyond those already known stylish Copper Wear. We often don’t think about the science behind our clothing. In this article I give a clear description about a material not often used in clothing.

Where The Extra Weight Is Coming From

Where The Extra Weight Is Coming From

By Victoralynn Davis

Unless you meticulously chart everything you eat and how many calories it contains, likely, you don’t remember everything that you ate over the week. To determine  where excess weight is coming from. Utilize a free food tracker app or use a good old fashioned pen and notebook it can get you started with recording eating habits, and measure your carb. In addition, with food tracker app you can also determine what’s working against your health goal. 

Now you might be asking: what exactly should I be looking out for dietary purposes? In all likelihood, it’s carbohydrates.Carbohydrates are simply sugar molecules that are broken down

from long chains into simpler molecules called glucose. Glucose is the primary molecule used for energy within your body. That’s why you may like sweet things like candy, sugary snacks, and fruit to a lesser extent. Those things have a concentrated amount of carbohydrates that ultimately break down to sugar. But sugar isn’t just present in concentrated sugar foods. It’s also in what can be considered non-sweet foods like vegetables, bread, pasta, grains, and even beer. Your body may like the taste, texture, or extra boost of energy you get from those things, but where does the excess glucose go if you aren’t using it?  It is stored in fats. If you’re working out a double-time to try and lose a little or a lot of weight, and nothing is working, take a look at the foods mentioned above. Are you indulging in them more often than you should? Now, you may have heard of simple vs. complex carbs. It can be kind of confusing, especially since there are potential weight gain culprits in both groups. The best way to figure out which carbs to consume is to eat food that is as close to nature and as unprocessed as possible. The more you consume processed something is, the more energy-dense probably is, which means that extra energy will turn into fat (or negatively affect your health in some other way). Eliminating carbs consist of the following:

Bread for sure! all types of yeast: whole, sliced, seeded, wheat, so-called natural or organic, hamburger buns, hotdog buns, croissants, pizza, cinnamon rolls, cookies, donuts, pastries, the list goes on. Next is kinds of pasta. That means macaroni, spaghetti, fettuccine, ravioli, lasagna, are all off the list.

Next is concentrated junk food items, such as sodas, any beverage containing artificial sweeteners like high fructose corn syrup, candy, cereals, and gummy or granola bar snacks.

And let’s not forget about white potatoes in the form of french fries (cut out the starch from your diet ). After these eliminations, see how much your workouts and body will improve from the change. Replace all of the above-mentioned sweets with our original carbohydrate source: fruits and vegetables, and more vegetables in the form of leafy greens than anything. And don’t worry, you’re not just limiting yourself to lettuce and carrots. There’s a myriad of vegetables and fruits available for you to try .I’ve found that more exotic fruits like Fuyu persimmons and dragon fruit are great as snacks, as well as cherries, seeded grapes, blueberries, strawberries, and blackberries. Be creative with salad recipes and try. different lettuce varieties, like butterleaf, red leaf, or bibb lettuce, or mix the greens and combine them with arugula or dandelion greens. Mix them with berries to make it naturally sweeter if you’d like. And if you want avocado, have at it! This is also an excellent opportunity to check out your local health-centered grocery store, or maybe a few of them if you’re able. Sometimes you’ll find different stores that carry other foods, and be sure to research any seasonal foods. Buying in-season helps you to save money, plus you’ll be eating in a way your body has been familiar with for thousands of years (that is, eating what’s available by season).

So if you’ve tried everything you could except cutting out those processed carbs, then that might be what’s making your body hold onto that weight. It won’t be easy; processed carbs are one of the most challenging foods to leave beyond on the path to excellent health. Even if you indulge every once in a while, don’t feel bad about it. Just chart it down and make a note not to indulge again, at least for a long, long time. Take care, and don’t give up on your neverending health journey.

6 Ways to Stamp your Look in 2021

Author By: Aisha Z Keeney

Last year, 2020, our sense of fashion and clothes hanging in our closets has changed irrevocably. The need to put together a proper outfit was no longer a necessity for our appearance. This year 2021, has started off to a similar beginning; the thought of fashion has no relevance during this strange and singular moment in time. To reduce the role and value of clothes to pure functionality is to miss the point entirely. An outfit doesn’t need to be over the top to make you feel polished, confident, and ready to take on the day – no matter the circumstances. An exceptional design is often the most understated.
While London is still amid a strict lockdown, having spent months stuck in the same routine, when shopping, I find myself looking for pieces that will elevate my day-to-day sense of fashion.


The New Jean shape
As the fashion faux between smart and casual dressing has blurred in recent seasons. The most timeless clothing piece is a pair of denim jeans with a neutral casual top or blouse. A pair of pants with a sweatshirt (cotton shirt) is a safe option for casual and neutral wear. After, what seems like a lifetime, skinny jeans are no longer a popular fashion piece in any casual capsule.
The most timeless clothing piece is a pair of denim jeans with a neutral casual top or blouse, considering a high-rise, distressed and straight-leg style paired as capsule collection is a classic. Retro-inspired jeans, paired with proportions by adding statement sleeves. Embracing a more relaxed look of unique jean shape and style. Minimal effort, maximum impact? It’s all down to good jeans.

New Shape Jeans

Soften up with Paisley
Flood your wardrobe with prints this year! From the classics to the most modern, give your outfits a trendy, artsy, or wild touch. Whichever suits your sense of style best. Did you know the bohemian-style print with a curved tear shape has been making its mark on catwalks? Many designers embrace Bohemian-style in 2021. Bring in two pieces with the same color or try mixing different colors. However, you blend it; paisley is set to make a fashion statement for you in 2021.

Do you go all-in on trends? Then this one’s for you. Dare to go bold with a whole paisley look. Bring in two pieces with the same color or try mixing different colors. However, you blend it; paisley is set to be trending for 2021.

The New Clutch
Traditionally, the clutch has been considered an evening bag, comes in butter-soft styles designed to be tucked insouciantly under your arm or carried in the crook of your elbow. While these understated designs make the perfect addition to silk separates and all-black ensembles, their generous proportions mean they’re also an effortless way to add a fashion-forward edge to your everyday look and are a capsule wardrobe go-to. The size for this season’s essential clutch makes it a stalwart for night and day.

Penny Loafers
Penny loafers were originally designed for men, the style of shoe has always been a classic and a staple in women’s closets. The first essential for any capsule wardrobe? Penny loafers has a history that stretches back almost a century – and not many pieces can boast the same style mileage as pair of penny loafer. Truly an eternal classic, the allure lies in its versatility.

Luxe Sweats.
Whether you’re preparing to return to work, or your dining-room table will be doubling as your office for the foreseeable, the ‘new normal’ has had a significant impact on the way we dress. Comfort has now become the number-one priority for many people, including the most ardent fashion fans. Luxe sweatpants are the new capsule wardrobe must-have.

Not only are wide-leg and tapered styles perfect for lounging in, but styled up with a simple white tank, coordinating sweater, and finished with ankle-tie sandals, they also turn off-duty into effortless. Cozy and considered sweats can be styled up or down to suit your mood.

Luxe Sweats

Combat Boots
Undoubtedly one of this season’s most classic designs, high combat boots promise to put an irreverent spin on any outfit. The perfect complement to everything from diaphanous dresses and oversized knits to micro-mini skirts invest in a pair, and they’re sure to become one of the most-worn pieces in your capsule wardrobe. Are you teaming yours with blue denim? Chunky boots also work with the most unexpected styling combinations, thanks to their authoritative effect. Stay one step ahead by tucking your jeans in – next season’s fail-safe styling trick.

FABRIC AND FIBERS

NATURAL AND SYNTHETIC FIBERS

NATURAL

COTTON grows in warm climates and most of the world’s cotton is grown in the U.S., Uzbekistan, the People’s Republic of China and India. Other leading cotton-growing countries are Brazil, Pakistan and Turkey. 

SILK The protein fiber of silk is composed mainly of fibroin and is produced by certain insect larvae to form cocoons. The best-known silk is obtained from the cocoons of the larvae of the mulberry silkworm Bombyx mori reared in captivity.

HEMP   fabric is made from the long strands of fibre that make up the stalk of the plant. These fibres are separated from the bark through a process called “retting.” These fibres are then spun together to produce a continuous thread that can be woven into a fabric.

CASHMERE  Both the soft undercoat and the guard hairs may be used; the softer hair is reserved for textiles, while the coarse guard hair is used for brushes and other non-apparel purposes.

SYNTHETIC

POLYESTER  is a generalised term for any fabric or textile, which is made using polyester yarns or fibres. It is a shortened name for a synthetic, man-made polymer, which, as a specific material, is most commonly referred to as a type called polyethylene terephthalate (PET). It is made by mixing ethylene glycol and terephthalic acid. That all sounds extremely scientific, but basically, polyester is a kind of plastic.

NYLON Nylon is a generic designation for a family of synthetic polymers, based on aliphatic or semi-aromatic polyamides. Nylon is a thermoplastic silky material  that can be melt-processed into fibers, films, or shapes.  It is made of repeating units linked by amide links similar to the peptide bonds in proteins. Nylon polymers can be mixed with a wide variety of additives to achieve many different property variations. Nylon polymers have found significant commercial applications in fabric and fibers.

SPANDEX Man-made fibers are gaining popularity compared to the natural fibres in recent times. One of them is the spandex fiber which has captured the garment industry. Spandex is a lightweight, soft smooth synthetic fiber which has a unique elasticity. Due to its elastic property, it is used in making stretchable clothing. It is also known as ‘elastane’ in Europe and many other parts of the world.  

RAYON  is a semi-synthetic fiber made from reconstituted wood pulp. Even though rayon is made from plant fibers, it is considered semi-synthetic because of the chemicals, like sodium hydroxide and carbon disulfide, used in the production process. Rayon can be an imitation form of silk, wool, and other fabrics, and examples of rayon include modal, viscose, and lyocell.

The Kaftan- The perfect blend of Comfort and Sophistication

Africa is the world's second-largest continent with 54 countries, so fashion trends are very diverse and vary from coast to coast.Traditional African clothing, such as kaftan, Ankara, and many others modern African print clothing, are different styles compared to other parts of the world and are often inspired by Culture, languages, nature, food, and music.


While African fashion has always been bold and beautiful, a kaftan is the trending fashion and has so many gorgeous styles. When it comes to dressing up, my status quo is "A woman should wear the outfit and not the outfit wear her" what we wear can express our personality, and of course, comfort is one of the essential aspects of dressing up. 


The kaftan gives clean, comfortable, chic, easy to wear silhouettesthe idea for African women and African fashion lovers who want to look elegant and glamorous.


The kaftan slowly gained popularity for its exoticism and as a form of loose-fitting clothing. The rise of kaftan has a lot to do with pushing the boundaries for what women could wear and as the kaftan enabled women to wear this not just at home but outside in public, with the variety of colors in the long dresses which are very feminine, comfortable and easy to wear in different cuts and fabrics to flatter every shape andsize's certainly modest yet fashionable!
