Following the successful launch of SilverTech for men, Organic Basics, a US-based start-up, has launched SilverTech, silver-infused undergarments for women. The collection includes socks, active bras, underwear, and T-shirts.
With real, pure silver woven directly in the fabric, it becomes 99.9 per cent effective at preventing bacterial growth. The fabric does not degrade in strength or wash out over time, unlike other similar products. It stops the dwelling of door-causing bacteria, thus, needs less washes and allows more number of wears. Moreover, prolonging time between washes will save on greenhouse gas emissions, water, and energy on a larger scale. Made out of incredibly soft organic cotton, the silver in the fabric is 100 times larger than nanoparticles making it too large to penetrate the skin, therefore making it safe to use next to skin.

“SilverTech is an innovative fabric technique in producing underwear. It was only a matter of time until we came out with a women’s line of SilverTech underwear after our men’s brand had such success. Silver plays a huge role in these products. It has been used in space suits and in the medical industry for many years due to its unique anti-bacterial capabilities,” says Mads Fibiger Rasmussen, Founder, Organic Basics.
SilverTech for women, currently only available on Kickstarter, has already gained considerable recognition.
