About latex

Latex has been used in the making of various things for a few hundred years already thanks to its properties. The first use in the clothing industry dates back to the late nineteenth century, where through its use the first raincoat was born. This means that nowadays we all see latex almost on a daily basis without even realising it, but it wasn’t until recently that even luxurious clothing from this material has started to appear on catwalks of famous designers, in music videos by popular artists, and in videos of diverse influencers. It has long stopped being true that latex clothing only belongs in fetish clubs and dark torture chambers. Clothing from latex can look luxurious, extravagant, as well as subtle, and on top of that latex is natural - it is therefore a sustainable material.

Trees producing latex

What is latex?

Latex is a liquid, which is being naturally produced by certain plants and trees. It makes for the base ingredient for the production of many rubber products such as medical tools, tires, examination gloves, condoms and last but not least latex sheeting or “fabric” for the production of latex clothing.

How is latex sewn?

Latex is basically a type of rubber “fabric”. Same as for example satin or cotton, but with very different properties and structure. It is characterised by high elasticity and softness and unlike conventional textiles it is not sewn, but glued with the help of special glue. The production of clothing from latex is difficult in many aspects and it’s necessary to stick to the exact technical steps.
