Our Innovation We impregnate natural fibers with copper and use them to develop heating fabrics that behave like regular cloth. The functionalized fabric has the right electrical resistivity so that it homogeneously heats up when connected to a battery. This next generation heating fabric is thin, lightweight, flexible, sustainable and recyclable.
