Emana - Boosting Your Energy - Considered a breakthrough in polyamide for textile applications; Emana is a polyamide 6.6 yarn with bioactive minerals in its polymer matrix, which transform body heat into energy through far infrared rays.
Emana yarn promotes a unique interaction between clothing and skin, improving micro-circulation and cellular metabolism. Its benefits have been proven through severe testing protocols and clinical analysis. It´s a result of four years of intensive research.
"For sportswear, the yarn improves thermo-regulation and performance during exercises, that means better efficiency and lower muscle fatigue for the Emana yarn user during sporting activity, with no muscle damage," adds Haidar.
She adds that the technology has been patented internationally and Emana is Oeko-TEX 100 certified, meaning it can be used in making clothes for all users..
