2020 has had an unprecedented impact on our daily lives. The COVID-19 pandemic has made traveling — near or far — more complex and challenging than ever before. With BioRomper, we wanted to create something to meet the moment; an innovative new garment that blends fashion and function for everyday people on the move in this new normal.
The idea for BioRomper was born from images of hyper cautious travelers wearing full blown hazmat suits to board airplanes during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our team was inspired by the design challenge of fusing fashion and function to create something more practical for consumers on the move in our current context – a new kind of garment for the new normal.
We partnered with a local NYC designer and manufacturing expert to bring our vision for a futuristic full-body garment to life. Our partner has deep expertise in sustainability – pretty soon, this became a cornerstone of our product vision too.
We realized that if we truly wanted to make something innovative, that meant using high-quality recycled materials and using plastic-free packaging. So that's exactly what we've done.
From a functional standpoint, we wanted to create something that provides wearers with a little peace of mind. Our garment not only provides head-to-toe coverage with a sleek and stretchy blend of fabrics, but it's also treated with a silver ion antimicrobial finish that provides an additional layer between you and the germs lurking on seats, headrests and other surfaces.
The synthesis of these efforts is BioRomper. We hope you enjoy wearing "your new supersuit" as much as we enjoyed making it. Here's to a brighter future.
