â€œWe have chosen Polygiene ViralOff technology to add value to our different products.

We have seen an increased demand of products with antimicrobial effect during the pandemic, but also post-pandemic,” said Abhay Dahale, Founder of Igyne Fashion.
Ulrika BjÃ¶rk, CEO, Polygiene, added, â€œThe potential is big for these types of garments commonly used across India, as well as the entire south Asia. Demand of antimicrobial textiles has increased during this tough time of the pandemic, and it has put Polygiene on the map in India. Additionally, we also see that our main business of Polygiene Stays Fresh technologies is coming back in the Indian market, that saw strong growth even before the pandemic.”
The kurti originates from the traditional long tunic Kurta that was used in the past in northern India and has since developed to a tunic worn by women throughout south Asia. Women typically have several kurtis in varied materials for use at different occasions.
