What is Solapel ?

Solapel is our representative innovation which is built on our over 35-years experience of reducing the impact on Earth. The biggest feature of Solapel™ is durability of water repellency which is PFC-free and can remain 70% efficient after 120 times washing which equals 24 hours continuously laundering and it’s six times more efficient than other existing products; on the other hand, it is because of the strong chemical attachment that this technology can minimize the contamination of chemicals into our environment while fabrics are laundering.
