Garmatex uses jade for cooling and launches ‘bio-anatomical’ shirt

Canada-based fabric maker Garmatex Technologies is targeting the golf and sportswear markets with its latest products: a ‘posture-improving’ shirt and temperature-regulating accessories with embedded jade.

Prime4orm is described as a ‘bio-anatomical shirt’ which aims to increase the suppleness and flexibility of muscles by ‘re-engineering the body form’ to release tension and stiffness.

The creator of the Prime4orm fabrics, Garmatex's chief innovation officer, Doug Thom, said they are changing the way he plays golf: "The first time I wore it I dropped 10 strokes off my normal score and I experienced none of the back pain that has been hurting me for the last 20 plus years."

IceSkin Gear use natural jade minerals for their cooling properties. Unlike technical fabrics that contain a natural sweetener found in gum to produce a cooling effect, IceSkin uses a three dimensional knitting process engineered to ensure the cooling effect remains for the life of the garment. IceSkin accessories include towels and wristbands, and it was launched in apparel last August.
