Tehama will introduce Minerale within its Fall, 2009 collection at the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando.
Minerale fabric uses natural technology derived from minerals to improve performance and comfort through evaporative cooling, odor resistance and added UV protection.
The naturally occurring minerals in Minerale fabrics are also used to purify and soften water with their ability to absorb impurities.
Minerale fabrics are also designed to wick and evaporate moisture quickly and be refreshed with normal washing and drying.
“Minerale enables us to offer superior technical qualities of enhanced wicking, UV protection and odor management in a pure, white fabric. This is something we’ve not been able to get with the carbon fabrications,” said vice president of design Anne Ingham.
“It truly opens up the possibilities for keeping our styles fresh and meeting our customer requests, while still being green,” she added.
The women’s collection will feature three items with Minerale technology, including a Mandarin collar zip placket polo, colourblock polo and sleeveless colourblock polo.
The men’s collection will include a cyclone colourblock polo in three colours with Minerale technology.
