Hedy Lamarr Patent by Lawrence Keogh

Hedy Lamarr 9 November 1914 – 19 January 2000 Drop dead gorgeous, extraordinarily courageous and double clever. The line drawing is taken from her joint patent application for the remote control of objects by encrypted radio transmissions that cannot easily be jammed or read and controlled. The patent was granted in August 1942 and became the basis of the technology that drives your mobile phone.

Our t-shirts are unique for being wholly made with CoolMax freshFX. CoolMax is a patented fibre designed to wick perspiration and accelerate moisture evaporation, keeping wearers cooler and drier. This wicking feature of the fabric is made possible by micro channels engineered into the profile of and surface of the fibre. These channels are cleverly dimensioned to exploit the surface tension and capillary action of water. Being physical properties of the fibre, these channels endure and do not significantly diminish with wear or washing.

Antimicrobial (freshFX) treatment stops the propagation of odour producing bacteria. This is achieved by embedding silver salt crystals into the structure of the fibre. FreshFX treatment like the wicking is permanent and does not leach out with everyday use. These characteristics ensure the shirts remain cool, dry and odour free regardless of what you might do in them. Performance of the fabric is guaranteed through a certified and monitored manufacturing process.
