lifethreads-launches-contego-collectionA second generation product line of medical apparel is being introduced by LifeThreads LLC.

The new Contego Collection, which follows last year’s successful introduction of LifeThreads’ Classic Collection, is treated with an EPA-registered antimicrobial active ingredient that protects the fabric from harmful pathogens found within institutional medical environments. All LifeThreads garments are fluid resistant offering health care employees protection against blood, urine, vomit and other bodily fluids.

Contego offers new styles with stretch tops, pants and cargo pants that are available in six colors – black, pewter, white, wine, royal blue and navy blue with three additional colors – ceil blue, hunter green and eggplant – debuting in March 2016. The premium quality stretch fabric is made out of cotton (55 percent), polyester (41 percent) and spandex (4 percent) and provides an improved fit and greater comfort for health care professionals. Sizes range from XS to 3XL.

Life Threads’ textiles are designed to prevent the spread of harmful bacteria in health care settings where patients are most vulnerable.

“With the introduction of our new Contego Collection, we are challenging the status quo by offering a new line of highly-styled, comfort plus medical apparel with contemporary colors that medical professionals have been requesting for years,” said Karan Jhunjhunwala, founder and CEO of LifeThreads. “Our new wide range of garment colors supports coding schemes used increasingly in institutional settings to make it easier for patients to identify caregivers.”
