AVIRO was founded in Aotearoa, New Zealand with a mission to create innovative everyday garments that help prevent the spread of dangerous germs through textile surfaces. The secret ingredient in AVIRO garments is HeiQ Viroblock - a new Swiss developed technology designed to inhibit the presence and growth of bacteria and enveloped viruses, such as coronavirus and influenza. AVIRO fabric has been developed with industry leading filament grading technology. It allows for a breathable and technical fabric that doesn’t retain moisture in the same way cotton and other natural fibres do. This, combined with the Swiss engineered HeiQ Viroblock technology, provides a strong antimicrobial defence against bacteria and viruses.
