no chemicals, no water
No microplastic release
Folds scrubs are at the forefront of emerging fabric technologies that create protective synthetic tech fabric out of recycled material using less energy, no chemicals, and zero water, resulting in recyclable and comfortable scrubs with zero microplastic release.
We employ a circular model to create sustainable garments. This is our commitment to reducing the problem of waste and overconsumption.
Through recycling and repolymerization of old scrubs, more yarn is spun and knitted into fabric to make new scrubs. This is our circular model.
We care about our planet Earth, which is why we created scrubs that are both performant and part of a circular model.

Folds scrubs, made in partnership with Meryl® Technologies, have antiviral, antimicrobial, and antibacterial properties.
The advanced silver technology along with an added carbon compound is designed to inhibit the growth and persistence of bacteria and enveloped viruses.
Our scrubs reduce risk of infection by not releasing polluted microfibers into the air.
Testing shows that the antiviral technology eliminates over 99% of Staphylococcus Aureus bacteria and Betacoronavirus 1 (ATCC® VR-1558™).
The latest testing with the SARS-CoV-2 virus was conducted by researchers at the Doherty Institute. The test simulated the real-life interaction of small aerosol droplets contaminating clothing. A known concentrate of SARS-CoV-2 virus was contacted with the sample fabric for 30 minutes followed by the measurement of the remaining infectious SARS-CoV-2 viruses. The fabric sample treated with the advanced technology showed no infective viruses left after 30 mins. The results show a SARS-CoV-2 virus reduction of 99.99%.
