Why do t-shirts contain silver nanoparticles?
Silver nanoparticles can now be found in antibacterial products, industrial production, catalysis, household products and consumer goods. A very popular use is in sportswear, as silver nanoparticles help eliminate odours.
However, they also find use in medical products, optical sensors, cosmetics, paint production, pharmaceuticals, food, diagnostics and cancer treatment.
These are silver particles ranging in size from about 1 to 100 nanometres. Spherical ones are the most common, but they also come in other shapes. They are not usually made up of silver alone, but often also contain a relatively large percentage of silver oxide, which is formed by oxidation on the relatively large surface of the nanoparticles. The silver contained in nanosilver socks serves to prevent and help eliminate fungus, mycoses and eczema.
The silver molecules are firmly attached to the polyester fibres. Silver is known for its antibacterial properties - it eliminates bacteria produced in sweat that are the source of odor. Once the socks are dry, they do not smell. However, this process is not endless. After the first few uses, the odor is suppressed, but after multiple uses, the odor may appear. Therefore, these materials also need to be washed. However, compared to conventional socks, the intensity of the odour is incomparably lower, as is the speed of its onset.
- 60% cotton
- 32% polyester (antibacterial fiber nanosilver®)
- 8% elastan (Lycra®)
Cotton is soft, comfortable, and breathable. It's perfect for sports because it wicks moisture away from the skin, keeping you cool and dry. Cotton is also durable, so it can stand up to repeated washings.

Lycra® - elasticity and pliability
Gives the material greater elasticity (pliability) and resilience. The stretch of these fibres is up to eight times their length.
Material nanosilver® do not need any special treatment. It is the same as normal functional clothes.
We recommend washing at 40 degrees.
We do not recommend bleaching.
We do not recommend ironing.
Do not use chemical treatment.
We recommend drying under 60 °C.
Do not use fabric conditioner
We don´t recommend using the fabric conditioner to save the functionality of nanosilver® technology. The fabric conditioner creates the coat which makes a barrier between the skin and the material. To have the perfect efficiency of these clothes, it is important the molecules of silver to be in touch with the skin.
In case you treat these clothes with fabric conditioner, wash it again in water to recover the functionality.
Aggressive components of sweat, deodorants and sunscreen may possibly have negative reactions and damages to nanosilver clothing material.
E.g. Deodorants containing DEET may dissolve synthetic fibers, including PES.

Nanosilver® is a product brand of Nanotrade, one of the largest Czech sellers of nanotechnology goods. The nanosilver brand also includes functional clothing, including socks.
How do Nanosilver products work?
Nanosilver brand socks are enriched with silver nanoparticles that actively eliminate bacteria and other microorganisms. This prevents their further reproduction and fights against the smell.
Which Nanosilver product to choose?
Choose a suitable product according to the purpose of using the socks:
► medical socks – např. white medical socks with silver,
► party socks – např. black dress socks with silver,
► cycling socks – např. light green cycling socks with silver,
► sports socks with low ankle – např. black/pink low sport socks with silver,
► compression knee socks – např. green reflective knee socks with silver.
