The special fabric was created by Bagir’s sister company, Polgat Textiles. A specialist in developing unique fabrics for apparel manufacturers, Polgat combined wool with Smart Fabric Technology, developed for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) in the United States. The special technology contains patented microencapsulated phase-change materials called Thermocules, which absorb, store, and release heat, maintaining a balance in temperature.

Outlast Technologies, the developer of the Smart Fabric Technology, issued Polgat the exclusive global license on all wool-blend fabrication. Polgat CEO Ofer Gilboa told Globes that the high-tech capability has been introduced in a collection of classically tailored suits being marketed by men’s haberdashery chain Jos. A. Bank, located throughout the United States.

The suits are being marketed under the “Stays Cool” label, and Jos. A. Bank staff report excellent sales for the line so far.
