Feel at EASE

What: A clothing collection that protects wearers against electromagnetic radiation from wireless devices, introducing conductive materials from industrial gear into everyday outfits.

Why: Most of us live in a smog of electromagnetic radiation from wireless technology. We don't yet know what the long-term impact will be on our health. But for those who prefer to be on the safe side, ‘Feel at EASE’ offers an attractive solution without the need to disconnect or unplug.

How: Integrating conductive metals like copper or silver into the fabric partly blocks electromagnetic waves. A multifunctional jacket, a sporty jumpsuit and a casual hoody are meant to counter potential damage from keeping a phone in your pocket, working with a laptop on your knees, or passing a transmission tower.
