The World's First 'Self-Cleaning Jumper' Is Here Just In Time For Christmas Parties
The world's first 'self-cleaning' jumper, which miraculously bounces liquid off the fabric without staining it, has been unveiled just in time for Christmas parties.
We see what they've done there.
The high-tech garment, which dries 40 per cent faster than regular clothing, is being branded as one of the most sustainable items of clothing ever invented and it doesn't need to be washed for up to a month.
Entrepreneur Varun Bhanot, 29, said: "We created a jumper and a hoodie range that repels liquids, dirts, sweats and odours, because you never really know what's going to happen on any given day."
"You could spill your coffee, spill some water, or maybe you're at a party and you might spill some wine down your jumper."
Adding: "You could wear it in the gym, or you could go out and about in it for more than a month and you probably wouldn't even need to wash it.
"After more than a year of experimentation, prototyping and fabric development we've created what we think could be the world's first set of self-cleaning clothing."
He came up with the idea along with wife Anisha, 29, in a bid to help homeless people in Britain - but admitted that the jumper, which uses nanoscopic fibres to repel liquid, would be perfect for boozy Christmas parties if wine was spilled.
Based in East London, the couple launched a charity together, Unhoused.org, to help rough sleepers and through the organisation, they are donating one of their hoodies to charity for every one sold.
Each jumper costs £69.99 and the couple believe it "could be the most functional and sustainable hoodie ever made".
Varun said: "It could be a game-changer for sustainable clothing all over the world, and an absolute life-saver for the UK's homeless and those sleeping rough, who may not have access to washing facilities and need to be kept warm and clean all year round.
"What is great is for every single one bought, one is donated to the UK's homeless. We partnered up with a few shelters here in East London and the response from them has been one of a huge amount of surprise.
"Most of the stuff they get in tends to be second hand donations," he continued.
"They could have something which could keep them perpetually very warm, very clean, and would reduce the need for them to be constantly washing things in washing facilities and of course the environmental benefits that come along with that, really took a lot of these shelters by surprise.
"Even though we only launched it around a month ago, people have been absolutely astounded by the effect it can produce and also the longevity of something like this."
