Anti-microbial Technology

Anti-microbial or anti-bacterial properties are now common in many textile based products. Over the years these have centred upon silver based technologies or specific leachable chemicals which effectively poison and kill the microbes and bacteria. Sometimes these treatments can create issues of irritation to human skin, whilst also creating a situation where resistant strains can emerge. However there is a smarter alternative, based on a physical kill method, which utilises ionic attraction to actually pierce the cell membrane of the microbe through a molecular spike which we can attach at the fibril level of the leather fibre structure. Furthermore the reaction process ensures it is a durable treatment for the life of the leather and fully resistance to all forms of washing.
