A long effort invested in technical research has led us to this event, where we are proud to share with the world something that will level up the game of performance wear,” MV. Serkan Mert from Isko R&D said.
To demonstrate the versatility of these cross-functional fabrics, a collection of 18 different bottom silhouettes was created to provide inspiration on Isko Vital possible end uses, such as cycling, high impact training, yoga, wellness, post exercise recovery, and travel.
All the products included in the platform are certified by the Hohenstein Institute. This internationally accredited test laboratory and research institute specialised in textiles has played a pivotal role in providing an independent certification of the benefits and features of Isko Vital fabrics.
