Choose A Sustainable Fabric
At Fashionizer Spa, we believe that the perfect uniform starts with the right sustainable fabric. Innovation has always made up a large part of our ethos and we have developed our own proprietary fabrics and fabric treatments that are specifically designed for spa environments.
When developing our fabrics our focus is on combining elegance and style with sustainability and performance. Our eco-conscious textiles are produced through a transparent supply chain that is based in Europe. Each of the fabrics has a different texture, appearance and properties, so that our customers can choose the right fabric for their spa, resort or salon.
To ensure the durability, flexibility and comfort of our uniforms, we also combine natural fibers with small amounts of polyester and Lycra®. The final touch is our specialist performance finishes, especially suited to warm spa treatment rooms and massage oils. These include Silverplus® which is a antibacterial, stain resistant and environmentally friendly treatment which is skin safe, and a soil release fabric finish which helps with the removal of massage oil stains.
What are the advantages of natural fabrics?
Breathable – due to the cellular structure of natural fabrics such as cotton they are inherently soft, cool and comfortable.
Durability – cotton fabric does not tear easily, therefore can withstand frequent washing enabling a long-life cycle for these uniforms.
Easy Care – due to the natural composition of our fabric, our uniforms requires very little ironing and looks fresh even after a full day of strenuous wear.
Moisture Control – fabrics such as cotton and linen are natural sponges removing moisture build up between the clothes and the skin in order to keep the wearer dry.
Hypo-allergenic – dermatologists often recommend wearing natural fabrics to avoid skin irritation and allergic reactions.
Insulation – the cell structure of natural fabrics such as cotton creates air pockets that provide natural insulation, keeping the wearer cool in the summer and warm in the winter months.
Biodegradable and sustainable - natural fibers make sustainable fabrics that are renewable and biodegradable.
What are the benefits of the fabric treatments we use?
Silverplus® antibacterial finish – the properties of silver can prevent the buildup of bacteria which helps prevent odors from developing.
Soil release – a soil release finish can help prevent different liquids and powders from soaking into the fabric. If the stain stays on top of the fabric it makes the uniforms stain resistant and a lot easier to clean. Another benefit of using soil release on natural fibers is that they can manage oil stains and release of body odors better than a polyester allowing these uniforms to stay fresher for longer.
Why choose natural fabrics for your spa uniforms?
We understand that all uniforms have a job to do, they must be professional and presentable, easy to launder, comfortable yet adaptable and tailored to the job and climate at hand. For example, in hot climates a spa uniform needs to be lightweight, flexible and cool in order to enhance the experience of the wearer and allow them to achieve their best potential whilst being comfortable at work.
Spa managers and therapists who have been wearing Fashionizer Spa uniforms across the globe since 2008 are a testament to their successful performance.
Why is the sustainability of your uniforms important?
As the health of our planet deteriorates, awareness of the importance of sustainability in all our purchase decisions is growing. At Fashionizer Spa Uniforms we try and minimise the environmental impact that the production of our uniforms has on the planet, by choosing the right raw materials, production and distribution processes. We also take into consideration human rights, labour and other social issues. We can assure you that all our uniforms are produced ethically and sustainably.
