Covenant to commercialize Anti-mosquito garments

Feb '08
According to statistics more than 2.5 billion people in the tropical countries, two fifths of the world's population, are at risk from mosquitos, and this fabric invention could prove to be a succor from the menace.

Thai Covenant Co Ltd has come up with a brand new invention which can also be termed as one of the most awe-inspiring innovations in recent years. This marvelous creation is a saffron-colored robe infused with bug repellant to keep mosquitoes from biting Buddhist monks.

Conceptualized and brought out by a Thai fabric designer, these robes have been drenched in herbal bug repellant. The company which is going to launch this line of robes will target Buddhist countries around Asia like Myanmar, Sri Lanka and India.

While talking with Fibre2fashion, Mr Wisan Wanasaksrisakul, Managing Director of Thai Covenant, said “The product has already passed the International Standard Test method of WHO (World Health Organization) and would soon come up with a full range of home textile products such as bed sheet, pillow sheet, curtain etc by mid 2008, all having similar anti-mosquito characteristics.”

Production of Knitted polo shirts, t-shirts, jackets, pants, and blankets are already in the pipeline and will be made available in every color and size.

The company took nearly 8 months on developing this product and engaged 3 teams having an expertise in herbs, insects and textiles.

The market for these robes in Thailand alone is worth 2 billion baht (US $72 million) a year. However, each of these robes will cost 10 percent higher than the usual ones considering the fact that they are designed for a special purpose and require a special treatment.
