Labfresh, an Amsterdam startup, sells a pristine white business shirt -- the type of clothing that immediately scares off anyone who tends to be clumsy while eating and drinking. However, the Labfresh button-up is amenable to spills, as the shirt is infused with a hydrophobic material that makes it virtually impervious to stains.
Though there are several clothing companies that offer hydrophobic, stain-resistant pieces, Labfresh sets itself apart by applying that technology to woven fabrics. This means that Labfresh's shirts look and feel just like normal business shirts, while other brands are coated with a material that gives them an uncomfortable, slick feeling. Further, by infusing the hydrophobic properties directly into the fabric, the shirts are safe to run through the wash without losing their resistance to stains.
