The fabrics can be used to make garments, medical gowns, masks, and other personal protective clothing. Initially the fabrics will be exported to the EU, US and other countries. But if Bangladesh government want, the company will also manufacture for the country as well though the cost is bit high than the regular garments.

The fabrics are protected from all kinds of viruses and bacteria; wash durable, soft and breathable in 100% cotton and blends, and absolutely safe to the skin.
