Graphene Technology Is Being Sold On Our Website

We at Rey House are using this technology in 8 of our products Sweat Tops and two styles of trouser and they are quickly becoming our best sellers. So what is Graphene and how does it work in clothing?


Graphene technology is a relatively new development in the textile industry, with researchers and manufacturers exploring ways to incorporate this revolutionary material into clothing. Graphene is a single layer of carbon atoms arranged in a hexagonal pattern, and it is considered to be one of the strongest and most conductive materials known to man. Here are some of the key attributes of using graphene in clothing:

Enhanced durability: Graphene is incredibly strong and durable, making it an ideal material for clothing that needs to withstand wear and tear. Clothing made with graphene is expected to be more resistant to tears and snags, and to last longer than traditional clothing materials.

Increased conductivity: Graphene is a highly conductive material, which means that it can be used to create clothing that can heat up or cool down quickly. This could be particularly beneficial for outdoor clothing, such as winter wear, as it could help to keep the wearer warm in cold weather.

Improved moisture management: Graphene is highly hydrophobic, which means it repels water. This attribute can be useful in clothing, as it can help to wick away sweat and moisture, keeping the wearer dry and comfortable.

UV protection: Graphene is able to block out UV rays, which means that clothing made with graphene could offer improved protection from the sun. This could be particularly beneficial for outdoor clothing or sportswear.

Antibacterial properties: Graphene has been found to have antibacterial properties, which means that it can help to prevent the growth of bacteria on clothing. This can help to keep clothing fresh and reduce the need for frequent washing.

One example of a company that has developed a graphene-based clothing is the UK-based company, Directa Plus. They've developed a line of sportswear that incorporates graphene, which they claim is able to keep the body at a comfortable temperature, wick away moisture, and eliminate odors.
Another company, Graphenea, has developed a graphene-based fabric called "Graphene Textiles" which they claim to be lightweight, flexible, and conductive, opening the door to the development of new products such as smart textiles, wearable sensors, and medical devices.

It's worth mentioning that the use of Graphene in clothing is still in the early stages and there's still a lot to be done in terms of research and development, as well as testing and validation of the benefits. But the potential of Graphene in clothing is promising, as it can provide a range of benefits such as enhanced durability, improved moisture management, UV protection, antibacterial properties, and more.
