The Kolon Industries’ sports brand HEAD and the golf apparel brand ELORD produce and provide the uniforms made of the "MOS-LOCK" fabric with built-in repellent, keeping which keep mosquitoes carrying the Zika virus away from the South Korean archery and golf players participating in the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics.
The uniforms use the MOS LOCK fabric coated with natural mosquito repellent, which Kolon Fashion Material developed, so that South Korean archery and gold players can concentrate on their games without worrying about the Zika virus.
The uniforms that HEAD provides for South Korean archery players are designed using the colors of the taegeuk pattern—red, white and blue. A blue waist line in the top symbolizes hope and means maintaining the balance between left and right. The bottom is focusing on air permeability and elasticity, helping players, who move much, to perform better.
The golf brand ELORD developed a new “KOREA” logo for the uniforms in the process of producing the uniforms for South Korean players. The simple and sophisticated curved font used in the logo represents South Korean players’ soft and elaborate skills. The letter “A” in the logo expressed openness of the golf that has been adopted as a medal game once again in 112 years. ELORD will provide South Korean male and female golfers with uniforms of 12 styles, and Boston bags and hats of 15 styles, which all are emblazoned with the new logo.
Meanwhile, the MOS-LOCK fabric is coated with pyrethrin, the natural mosquito repellent extracted from eucalyptus leaves, protecting athletes from mosquitoes and fleas.
