Our Heattech® collection, designed with our favourite Japanese brand Uniqlo, is a line of stylish clothes that really keep you warm. No more layers of clothes!
A technological revolution which enables clothing to retain heat
Heattech® technology absorbs steam released by the body to create an insulating effect.
When water molecules produced by the human body evaporate from the skin, they move very quickly and are absorbend by the Heattech® fabric.
They are then stored in the highly absorbent viscose fibres.
Evaporating water is trapped
by Heattech® to generate heat.
Heattech® retains body heat.

Thinner but warmer
To retain body heat, it is vital to stop heat produced by the skin from escaping. Heattech® fabric is made of acrylic microfibre measuring approximately 1/10th of a human hair and the air pockets within these fibres help retain heat. Heat trapped by the viscose is then stored within the fabric.
