Underwear

You could argue that flame retardant t-shirts and boxer shorts do not give the right level of protection, meaning that the legs and sleeves are too short….. The ROOTS take on this is that FR underwear is additional protection in any form than non FR underwear. In the warmer months for example, it is better to wear a FR t-shirt than a non-FR alternative. Obviously these products are lower in the protection than the long sleeved alternatives but worn over an FR coverall, vital organs within the human body receive that extra protection. Even in such a way that the notified bodies classify these garments in the same standard as the long sleeved products.

Besides being light weight at just over 200 grams per cm2, ROOTS has also treated the knitted yarn with antibacterial and hydrophilic properties. Not only that we have added ‘body fresh’ fibres which is a ‘state of the art’ cellulose fibre and is produced with 100% natural and reproducible Jute.

Our (ROOTS) special manufacturing technology enables the ‘body fresh’ fibre to inherently retain bacteriostatic, bactericidal and antifungal properties. Because the fibre has a unique cross section, fabrics made from ‘body fresh’ fibre have a beautiful handle, is very soft to touch and has a high colour brilliance.
