Socks Karpathia- Love
are decent elastic socks that can be worn every day. The design for the Karpathia- Love socks is designed to present a subtle and elegant pattern to any outfit.
Karpathia- Love socks
are made from the unique Prolen® polypropylene fibre, which is characterised by its excellent thermal insulation properties. Prolen® fibre wicks away moisture 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® fibre products can resist stains. With its 100% recyclability, by purchasing Prolen® fiber products, you are being environmentally responsible and helping to protect the environment for generations to come.
Prolen® fibre does not react with chemicals produced by perspiration. When silver ions are applied, Prolen®Siltex fibre is produced, which is also used for the production of Karpathia- Love 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 times 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 has cetrificate according to Oekotex Standard 100, it meets the strict human-ecological requirements for the production of infant clothing. 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.
These Karpathia- Love socks use the Slovak Prolen®Siltex fibre with silver ions, which has been produced by Chemosvit Fibrochem since 1999. It is certified according to Standard 100 by Oekotex, class 1 (suitable for infant clothing). Prolen®Siltex fibre is permanently treated with an antibacterial (biocidal) additive based on silver ions, active ingredient: silver phosphate glass. Prolen® Siltex fibre prevents the growth of bacteria, reduces unpleasant odours and ensures hygienic freshness.
The antibacterial properties of the Prolen® Siltex fibre in Karpathia-Love socks have been confirmed by the VÚTCH – CHEMITEX certificate according to AATCC TM 100:2012 (tested for Klebsiella pneumoniae and Staphylococcus aureus), the VÚTCH – CHEMITEX test report according to ASTM E2149-13a (tested for Escherichia coli).
