For decades we have been used to moving around the world, reaching even the most remote corners of the planet to forge professional and trusting relationships with different players. However, this year we have decided not to go too far and to land in Tuscany to collaborate with a reality that, at least at first glance, seems to have no point in common with Kapriol. We are talking about the "Le Rogaie" farm which, in the splendid setting of the Maremma, near Grosseto, works in close contact with the earth and nature. The main activity of "Le Rogaie" is the breeding of dairy cows, but it also deals with crops, above all that of olive trees. Tasks narrated and explained on social channels, with videos and posts where love for the land exudes but also the commitment that such a job entails, making it rediscover or get to know for the first time. And it is precisely in the activities that the farm carries out every day that we will insert ourselves, making Kapriol-branded clothing, tools and PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) available for all those who undertake to carry it forward with good will, commitment and dedication. But what do a world linked to the environment like that of "Le Rogaie" has in common with the building context in which Kapriol operates? Many and small aspects, starting from the relationship with the roots, shared and told daily through actions and choices, emphasized even more by being both family-run businesses, linked to their history. With respect to the products offered, both we and "Le Rogaie" put quality first, not only in what we produce but also in the authentic relationships we form, whether they are with customers or with nature and animals. However, having solid roots does not make us give up dreaming of the future and making it more and more present every moment that passes, putting into play passion and a great desire to innovate and progress to reach new goals. In this, the Kapriol family and that of "Le Rogaie" are very similar. In the midst of this horizon, Kapriol and Le Rogaie see the word 'green' stand out. Doing business while respecting the environment will become an indispensable practice to ensure the survival of the planet. "Le Rogaie" fully expresses the intention of safeguarding the environment, moving in full respect of the context that surrounds it. Like Kapriol, we have also embarked on this journey by joining the Treedom project, but the collaboration with the farm represents a further step in continuing on this path and creating a better future. Let us not forget that man is an integrated part of this change, both positively and negatively: it is he who interacts directly with the environment, whether he has regard for it or not. By deciding to accompany "Le Rogaie" in the daily toil, dressing and equipping the workers, we choose to embrace a larger and more universal ethical cause, supporting a reality that takes care of the land, plants and animals and does not exploit them intensively to produce raw materials. Sustainability, as well as through the production process, can also pass through other ways, such as human and collaborative relationships. Now, thanks to the new partnership with Le Rogaie, Kapriol orange shades will appear among the Maremma earth colours.
From the “active particles” of volcanic origin the new 37.5® technology that increases comfort and improves performance.
Technology: wide field of research that studies the application and use of everything that can be functional to the solution of practical problems. And a practical problem that everyone faces in the various seasons is body temperature. We do physical activity and the body temperature rises and the body produces sweat - and we are hot - and shortly after the sweat evaporates, we immediately feel cold. And here the 37.5 Technology comes to our aid.
How does it work ?
It is a dynamic technology that interacts with the body to determine if it needs heating or cooling. It is activated with moisture and works based on the amount of moisture near the skin. Operation occurs through active particles, consisting of volcanic sand, which capture the infrared energy that the body emits. If there is moisture, it accelerates evaporation to cool; if, on the other hand, there is no humidity, the IR energy is returned to keep the body warm.
Science fiction? No, a technology that solves practical problems and helps keep the body at the ideal internal temperature of 37.5 degrees and the microclimate near the skin at an ideal relative humidity of 37.5%. The quick removal of steam, before it turns into sweat is the key to comfort and by improving comfort, fatigue is reduced and our performance increases.
Fabrics produced with 37.5 technology do not lose their effectiveness following use or washing as the active particles are incorporated in the yarns that make up the garments.
Kapriol proposes the Dynamic 37.5 clothing line for the 2022 collection, composed of garments that are easy to wear and easy to maintain; the most advanced answer for the most demanding professional. 37.5 technology is “Skin Friendly” certified (DIN EN ISO 10993 5 2009 10) in compliance with European standards.
