Producer of Garments Designed to Provide Warmth

InLab Design Limited is an innovative lifestyle brand committed to creating seamlessly invisible technology products, with a focus on quality, comfort, and craftsmanship. The flagship series of products, Comfort Touch, will offer a line of stylish scarves and blankets designed to keep people warm using battery-powered heating patches sewn into the fabric. InLab Design has officially launched its crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo.

The company was founded by Diana Yiu, a former marketer at Levi Strauss & Co., Vidal Sassoon, Fitbit Inc and Hong Tak Choi, an engineer and entrepreneur, in Hong Kong.

InLab is introducing the revolutionary Comfort Touch Series, an apparel collection that combines knitting and heating technology designed to keep people warm. Comfort Touch’s flagship product, a line of scarves, are scheduled to be available this fall, 2018. Made with premium natural wool, the scarves are knitted with a small, safe, and strong heating wire that is powered by a small low-voltage rechargeable battery.

The inspiration for the Comfort Touch Series springs from InLab Design CEO/Co-Founder Diana Yiu, who was constantly miffed by having to shiver at work in cold in air-conditioned offices. Yiu, an avid outdoors sports fan and enthusiast, is no stranger to the challenges of keeping warm at baseball and ice hockey games. Yiu also enjoys mountain climbing, hiking, and camping. The second Comfort Series product, wool blankets, will be available later this year.

“I am so happy to see my vision come to life with this beautiful line of scarves that blends technology to improve peoples’ active lives” Yiu said. “Our dedicated product team has designed these stylish scarves with the heating patch sewn into the fabric-totally invisible and wire-free. You can wrap the scarf around your shoulders or simply drape a blanket on your lap to stay warm to enjoy your favorite outdoor activities longer. In our long-term vision, we are striving in becoming one of the key player in the cutting-edge wearable, Smart clothing. It is the kind of apparel that has implemented electronic parts, in particular, microcomputers and sensors. It’s worn as ordinary clothing, providing additional value to the user by virtue of innovative technologies”.

The scarves and blankets feature a safe heating patch optimally positioned to radiate heat. Both products are designed with a small, discreet pouch which houses a chocolate square-sized battery (fully charged in two hours with a USB power source). With a simple slide control, the scarf or blanket warms up gently within 20 seconds and can keep you warm for up to two hours. The scarves and blankets are knitted with a small, safe, and strong heating wire – a silver plated nylon yarn that is tear and tarnish resistant (made by Shieldex®Conductive Fabrics).

Comfort Touch Scarves are available in casual grey, classic black and a “star shower” pattern that consumers can pre-order from Sept 19 to October 29, 2018.
The scarves offered by InLab Design are priced starting from $169.00; during their Indiegogo campaign the scarves can be pre-ordered starting at $109.00.
