Dutch brand ANKY Technical Casuals was founded in 1998 due to a shortage of fashionable, comfortable, high-quality riding gear and equestrian equipment. 🏇
Today, the company’s products feature an array of innovations, including Polygiene BioStatic™ Stays Fresh.✨This treatment is applied to many of its collections, including its popular Mockneck shirt, which returns this fall/winter. The shirt features breathable, four-way stretch fabric with thermal insulation.
“Thanks to the finish, the shirt stays fresh longer, which is not only pleasant for the consumer, but also for the environment,” ANKY states. “The consumers will feel cleaner, more hygienic and confident while working and training hard to achieve their goals.”
Wearing a garment twice as many times can cut its climate impact by 50% – it’s that simple.
As consumers, we all have a vital role to play in helping reduce the environmental impact of our clothing. The most important thing we can do is to keep using it for longer – and more and more studies are highlighting this point.
How effective is Polygiene in keeping you fresh, you may ask? Well, we took to the streets here in our home city of Malmö Sweden and asked our friends at Blå Hoddans, who run our favorite locally sourced fish market, to put our Polygiene Stays Fresh message to the test.
