Healthy outfit for spring time
We all know what it's like: the time between the cold weeks of winter and the hot summer is filled with weather fluctuations and daily changing demands on our clothing. iQ UV has developed a small collection that meets all of these needs: please meet the WAVE collection.
UV protection 50+ for skin that is sensitive after winter. Wide long-sleeved tops as pullovers or jackets, with or without a light hood for wearing with arms up or down on warm or cold spring days. 91% of the clothing is made from old fishing nets and carpets, with an added spandex component, sewn into comfortable, sustainably produced garments. Long-sleeved shirts, hoodies and hooded jackets are available in the trendy colours black, white, blue, turquoise and pink. The fabrics prevent perspiration at temperatures of up to 28°C outside or shivering on cooler days.
One exciting side effect: the production process uses only around 18 litres of water per shirt. For comparison: the production of a conventional cotton shirt requires around 2,750 litres of water. In 2021, iQ UV could therefore save over 42 million cubic metres of fresh water. "We want and we have to do something about the consequences of global warming," Markus Courtial, founder of iQ Company, feels committed to the future. "Only if the textile industry and consumers collectively recognise the seriousness of the situation and act accordingly in a sustainable manner will we prevent it from getting worse." The German company manufactures exclusively within the EU and is on the path to climate neutrality.
The "iQ UV" brand has been focusing on UV prevention for 20 years. The sporty, casual collections for leisure, outdoor, water sports, beach and work protection have the highest UV standard. The company pays attention to environmental protection and sustainability, producing its UV protective clothing from recycled PET bottles or old fishing nets with OEKO Tex Standard 100. A high level of comfort and a pleasant, cooling effect are, in addition to the protective effect, the reason why iQ UV shirts, UV caps, UV hats, as well as UV neck protection for helmets are popular.
