Lifting, bending, working hard in demanding environments, battling to make it through the day. While the clothes we wear, the stuff that is closest to our skin, doesn’t feel like it supports us. Frustrating, to say the least. But frustration is a great motivator for innovation. Because only when you don’t like the old, you invent something new. And that’s how the idea for Alsiflex was born.
For years, we have known that stretch clothing has allowed athletes to perform better by offering much greater freedom of movement and comfort. We all love wearing the stuff, whether we’re in the gym, in outdoor sports or at home. So at work, why would we continue to wear old fashioned, restrictive and uncomfortable clothing that really makes each shift feel like it lasts forever?
Alsico decided to pick up the gauntlet and find a way to tackle the threefold problem: how to get a durable stretch fabric that allows you to move freely, that is industrially launderable and does less harm to the planet than traditional work clothing?
We hired a top garment technologist from the fashion industry and after months of development, we cracked it. We developed a fabric with all the benefits found in the sports wear we all use. It's extremely comfortable, giving freedom to move and is able to withstand stringent industrial washing processes. We even managed to achieve this by using 79% of recycled and biobased polyester and 21% of cotton, pushing the CO² emissions two thirds lower than comparable fabrics.
So when we made new garments in Alsi-flex fabric and presented them to our customers they were delighted! In every single wearer-trial we have carried out, we have seen the same pattern coming back: once a customer has tried on a garment in Alsi-flex, they want nothing else.
So now you know why we developed Alsi-flex. For us it's all about working on solutions that make life better for people at work. Or as we like to put it: Our performance protects yours.
