Are Anti-Odor Fabrics A Good Thing?

When we hear the term “innovative fabrics,” we don’t exactly think high fashion. More like utilitarian ugliness. So it’s surprising to find out that this kind of cute dress is made from a new super-fabric. At New Zealand Fashion Week, a company called AgResearch debuted designs made of a “high performance” wool which has anti-odor and antibacterial properties. Meaning, you wouldn’t have to wash your clothes as often. From our own perspective, we think, “Great! Now I can be even lazier than I already am—er, I mean, I can be more eco-conscious.” From the other side of things, however: being around someone who hasn’t washed their top after wearing it four times in a row? Kind of nasty. What do you think? [New Zealand Herald]
