Fabricor the Chef Jacket from the future
If you are a chef and you are tired of cleaning your chef jacket, then you have to check this out. Its called Fabricor and its super cool (I’ll let the image speak for itself).
Anyways, Fabricor was started by an Australian startup that uses nanotechnology to create a ‘hydrophobic’ chef jacket and apron. According to the company this translates into a dry, stain-free uniforms for chefs and restaurant professionals, at the end of the day.
The company was started because cofounder Chef Adrian Li, was frustrated with keeping his chef jackets and aprons clean. Li, was previously a mentor on MasterChef Australia and is currently the head chef at Saigon Sally in Windsor.
So how does the jacket work? The nanotechnology application works by modifying the fabric at a molecular level by permanently attaching hydrophobic ‘whiskers’ to individual fibres which elevate liquids, causing them to bead up and roll off the fabric surface. The fabric’s patented technology can extend the life of the apparel is because the apparel doesn’t have to be washed as often and can be washed in cooler temperatures, the company stated. Also, Fabricor’s products are not made with spray-application like many on the market which can destroy fabrics and contain carcinogenic chemical. Its hydrophobic properties are are embedded into the weave during the production of the fabric.
The company is launching this technology to the hospitality industry but eventually plan to serve the medical industry by making medical garbs, nurses uniforms and lab coats next. Additionally, the company, has launched a Kickstarter campaign on Thursday 18th September 2014 to raise funds and awareness to launch their venture. Click here to help them out!
