Hooded jumpsuit helps protect commuters from coronavirus

Designed to shield people needing to travel, the one-piece garment is roomy enough to wear over clothes

Spotted: Italian design company Marta Scarampi has created a jumpsuit specifically to help keep travellers safe while flying and taking public transport. Company co-founder Marta Scarampi designed the one-piece when her sister and co-founder, Lucia, needed to fly internationally. Lightweight, breathable and roomy enough to wear clothes underneath, the jumpsuit includes a large hood and elasticated cuffs.

All aspects of the design have specific safety considerations relevant to what is becoming the new normal of social distancing in public. The elasticated waist and cuffs keep the garment from moving off the body. The hood is large enough to cover long hair and incorporates a collar wide enough to close over the top of a protective face mask.

Made from a silk-blend, waterproof fabric the founders call Deco, the jumpsuit is available as part of a travel set. Buyers can choose between the jumpsuit alone, or packaged with a matching face mask and travel bag. After a wearer arrives at their destination, the jumpsuit can be taken off and placed in the bag until it can be washed. As advocates of slow fashion, all Marta Scarampi products are made-to-order by hand in the brand’s atelier in Torino, Italy. The company is currently accepting pre-orders for the jumpsuit.

Other innovations Springwise has featured recently that are helping to clean up the fashion industry and make it less resource-intensive, include plant-based textile dyes and a new material made from plants grown in saltwater.
