Immunotex is a travel wear start-up, designed to help protect travelers from the growing threat of antibiotic resistant bacteria. The Resistance Runner is a bio-formulated shoe that utilizes cloned bacteriocins and micrococcus in a nutrient broth cocktail; essentially harnessing the bacteria’s own defense system as a protective layer. The special formula is infused into our own fabrication technology that adapts the marine sponge as a scaffold. Antibiotic resistance bacteria have become a serious worldwide public health threat in recent years, and finding alternative approaches to decrease our liability is the only way forward into the future of healthcare.
Resistance Runner combines three different designers from three different studios contributing to the project by their personal skillsets. All three designers come from multidisciplinary backgrounds including knitwear, fashion design and material innovation. All three designers have shifted towards the global effort in fighting for sustainably produced material goods.https://www.lindsayannhanson.com
