Folkies Socks – Berlin
are made from a unique Prolen® polypropylene fibre, which is characterised by its excellent thermal insulation properties. Prolen® fibre wicks moisture away the fastest of all fibres, to the next absorbent layer or surrounding area. At the same time, Prolen® fibre is the lightest of all fibres (up to 40% lighter than cotton fibre). Because Prolen® fiber is dyed in the mass, it retains its color fastness and does not release color into your skin. This protects your health while extending the colour life of the product. Prolen® fiber products can resist stains and because they are 100% recyclable, by purchasing Prolen® fiber products, you are being environmentally responsible and helping to protect the environment for generations to come. For this reason, the Folkies – Berlin sock pack represents
Prolen® polypropylene fibre has been produced in Slovakia since 1970 by Chemosvit Fibrochem s.r.o. The antibacterial Prolen®Siltex fibre can be used in Folkies socks, which is treated with a permanent antibacterial treatment based on silver ions.
Prolen® and Prolen®Socks
Folkies- Berlin socks are a Slovak product and do not need to be treated with formaldehyde to travel long distances as is the case with, for example, shipments from Asia. Unlike other fibers and clothing made from them, Prolen® and clothing made from it are “skin friendly” and can be worn by people with the most sensitive skin.
Prolen® fibre does not react with chemicals produced by perspiration. When silver ions are applied, Prolen®Siltex is produced, which is also used to make Prolen®Socks. It counteracts the growth of bacteria, reduces unpleasant odours, maintains the biological balance of the skin and ensures hygienic freshness. The antibacterial effect of silver has been known since the time of ancient Rome. Prolen® fibre has a slightly negative charge which is beneficial for the human body. Negative ions help blood circulation, prevent free radicals, regulate autonomic nerves, activate cells and strengthen the immune system. Thanks to this, we can perform better.
Since Prolen® fibre is certified according to Oekotex Standard 100, it meets the strict human-ecological requirements for the production of infant garments. When you wear Prolen®, you know what you’re wearing. Silver ions actively prevent the growth of bacteria, reducing unpleasant odours and maintaining the biological balance of the skin, ensuring a feeling of hygienic freshness.
