Triathlete Emma joins Celliant rollcall
Responsive textile technology for apparel, Celliant®, has inked a sponsorship of Australian triathlete Emma Jackson.
Jackson is 2014 Commonwealth Games medalist, 2012 Olympian and 2010 U23 World Triathlon Champion and joins Aussie Ryan Bailie, and US world champ triathlete Gwen Jorgensen as brand ambassadors for Project Clothing.
Melbourne-based Project Clothing incorporates Celliant textile technology that is reported to harness and recycle the body’s natural energy (heat).
Celliant utilises a proprietary mineral matrix that’s embedded into the core of the yarn.
Celliant is the proprietary technology of Hologenix, LLC, the designers, manufacturers and distributors of bio-responsive fibres and textiles for more than ten years.
Says chief executive of Hologenix LLC, Seth Casden, “We are excited to be sponsoring Emma and working with Project Clothing and their brand ambassadors.”
Project Clothing produces technical performance apparel for a wide range of sports and athletes.
Founder and Managing Director, Graeme Clarke, after years of producing technical performance wear for triathletes and runners, has developed Project Clothing to bring active innovations in apparel to summer and winter sports and the broader outdoor industry.
“Currently our athletes have tights, long sleeve run T’s and puffer vests all with Celliant and the feedback has been excellent,” he says.
The fibre gives superior muscle performance, faster recovery, improved thermal regulation and a more restorative sleep.
Celliant’s technology is suited to the extreme demands of outdoor sport applications in summer and winter clothing, says Australian Hologenix representative, Melbourne-based Richard Braham.
