Strongbody Apparel is a Canadian clothing brand that makes unique athletic and leisure wear for those living an active lifestyle. Entrepreneurs Quincy Samycia and Meghan Conyers started this forward-thinking business and today it is a company that others need to take notice of. One of the secrets to their success is their innovative Nano Elite+ fabric.
Strongbody Apparel is as Much About Technology as it is Style
It incorporates nanotechnology from the ocean. The key ingredient is chitosan: a linear polysaccharide harnessed from the shells of crustaceans. It inhibits the growth of odor-causing bacteria on your clothing.
They attach this antimicrobial solution to the textiles using an aqueous solution, and the nano and submicron dimensions of the molecules enhance the durability and feel of the fabrics. A great side benefit is that it is also non-toxic and environmentally friendly, and even safe for those with a shellfish allergy.
This technology is certified by the US Environmental Protection Agency and turns a byproduct of the fishing industry into a natural and renewable performance technology.
Style That is Perfect for the Office or the Gym
So naturally, the company has an eye toward being eco-friendly and is constantly innovating. For instance, their Pulse Elite Tee (Which may be one of their coolest products) uses wrinkle and fade-free technology, making the shirt easy to wash.
Strongbody Apparel hits that sweet spot between technology and fashion, which is not an easy thing for any company to achieve. The style of their clothing is perfect for the gym or the office. You can’t say that about many activewear companies.
It’s fascinating to find a brand that manages to be so unique and fosters so much innovation. This is a company that you need to keep an eye on because if their past is any indication, they are not finished wowing the activewear world.
The company believes strongly in making quality products with unparalleled craftsmanship. Every stitch, seam, and panel has to be perfect. The technology that goes into their textiles is impressive, whether you are talking about the strategic ventilation, flatlock stitching, being wrinkle-free, or the slimming, body-mapped panels that make you look good and feel good.
