Strata - Next to Skin Layers

The S-café fabric is made using recycled coffee grounds to produce a soft, light, flexible, fabric. It is also impregnated with 'activated' carbon, derived from coconut. It is UV-resistant, wicks water away, keeps the wearer cool and the activated carbon binds to sweat to eliminate unpleasant odours.

Using fabric manufactured according to the Bluesign® standard, the Strata garments are produced using innovative, resource-conserving and environmentally friendly techniques.

Odour Control

One of the qualities of the recycled coffee grounds, is that their structure at the microscopic level gives excellent odour control properties. These properties are re-activated with each wash cycle.

Fast Drying

Good wicking performance moves moisture from the skin to the outer surface of the fabric, where it can evaporate quickly.
