Our Material

When it comes to materials, we are working to be the gold standard for hygiene, cleanliness, and sustainability. After two years of material researching, developing, and testing, we created the first iteration of HercFiber. HercFiber is our unique material blend that's unlike any other material in the world. HercFiber is not just one material, but a type of material that's specific combination depends on the product. In general, HercFiber is made with at least two components including a metal like copper, silver, or zinc infused in a material like cotton, recycled polyester or bamboo, and a core fabric that achieves the user experience goals we're developing. For example; our HercFiber v.ZPC4 is made with bamboo infused with zinc, phase changing material, and collagen peptides. 

If you're interested in hearing the full story, let us take you back to when the material was developed. 

The Short Story of HercFiber

If you didn't read the story of how HercLéon was founded, check it out

Just a few years ago, our founder, Wen, was in Iceland with a backpack full of stinky clothes. He had packed enough clothes, but because the smelly clothes were so close to the clean clothes in his bag, it made everything smell. Wen was upset by this problem because it meant he would have to wear smelly clothes to the clubs, and that's never a great first impression to make, especially in a country like Iceland where style and hygiene are critical. So he decided that when he returned to the U.S., he would find a way to fix this problem for others that love to travel, live off grid, reduce their carbon footprint, or without access to a laundry machine. 

Along with assistance from industry experts, factories with experience, and over two years of material research and testing, HercFiber was developed for the first time. The first product released using HercFiber was the Apollo shirt and socks, which used HercFiber v.CM4 and the HercFiber v.CC2. Since the release of those two items, we have developed dozens of different versions of HercFiber and have a line up of over half a dozen unreleased products that utilize HercFiber.

HercFiber is critical to creating a
laundry-free future

While we're excited to have created such a unique material, we're more than happy to share with any other company that's dedicated to help people live a better, cleaner, and more eco-friendly life. As a company, our goal is to help push society forward, and we can't do that by ourselves, and so we're happy to help any other company that values this mission and isn't in it just to maximize their profit at the cost of pollution and harming the planet. The future is laundry-free, and we're excited to have a material group like HercFiber that makes that future possible and inevitable.
