Protective clothing and it's applications.

Recent breakthroughs in fabric technology have allowed for clothing that is not only comfortable, but incredibly strong. Arwear's protective underwear provides a barrier between the user and attacker, with fabric that is resistant to tear, cutting or breaking. Although panned as "anti-feminist", the potential applications and additions to this form of technology could allow women and girls to feel safer in urban environments. http://vimeo.com/74514464

Could we build on the idea of protective clothing, but not on a physical level? Outfits that offer a network in case of emergency's that utilise GPS or microphones to call for assistance.

I also liked the concept of protective clothing. Branded clothes are not affordable for everyone, so they can go with customised clothing from more promo, who provide clothes with reasonable price and incredibly strong and trendy fabric.To know more you can visit http://morepromo.ca/ online.
