Impetus has a line of quick-drying underwear, with the aim of making travel more practical. It’s called Voyager and the pieces are made with an innovative and sustainable polyamide fibre, which main characteristic is the fact that it takes up to 40% less drying time than necessary for identical cotton garments.
The new fibre is also produced with plastics collected from the ocean, as the company announces in a statement. The choice of this material brings even more softness, comfort and resistance to the garments, which also have the particularity of having antibacterial and anti-odor properties.
This line is fully aligned with the brand’s values: Impetus has been working to reduce its ecological footprint with water treatment systems, gas emission control and, in addition to photovoltaic panels, biomass use for heating water.
The company is the largest and most advanced Portuguese producer in the underwear sector, being considered one of the best in Europe. Thanks to a constant investment in new technologies, it has also made progress in the areas of workwear and sportswear.
The brand has nowadays an annual production capacity of 1.8 million kilograms, and more than 3.7 million pieces.
