I Heat You brings heated textiles to the fashion industry. We create clothes and accessories with added heat to fit your day to day wardrobe. No one should have to cold at the office, at home or at the party.
Back in 2016 our founder Emma Hällström was told that she was suffering from urethritis. She had been going to different doctors for 15 years. She had been treated countless times with antibiotics, been met with tons of scepticism and disbelief and had drunken all the cranberry juice she could get.
When Emma found out that she was one out of 500 000 women in Sweden suffering from urethritis, she decided that she had to come up with a solution to the problem.
To Emma, and many others, the key to avoid pain caused by urethritis is to keep warm. Heat is also great to ease pain.
A feministic innovation
It is a fact that the woman body is not (at all) prioritized in research, knowledge nor in medical care.
It is also a fact that indoor climate regulations are based on a study done in the 1960s on middle aged men. Women have a different metabolic rate and therefor find themselves more cold in their working environment.
This is why we need feministic innovation!
And a feministic revolution
The society needs to start to see the woman body as a part of the norm. However we are not able to go to all workplaces and turn up the temperature. Nor do we have the money to finance medical research, yet.
We start our feministic revolution with a direct solution of the problem – heated fashion. And in the long run we will help change in research priorities and society views.
