Product of the Year- Seraphina Active Sports Bra

We have been working to create and develop meaningful flame resistant garments that are not only made from one of the most protective fabrics on the market, but also made in a sustainable way to ensure we continue pursuing our mission.  Made in the USA is important to us and we are proud of the direction our mission is taking us. 

Imagine our joy in receiving the email from OH&S (Occupational Health & Safety) on July 28, 2022 telling us our Active Fit Sport Bra received a 2022 New Product of the Year award!  The development of this product has not been without trial and error, blood, sweat, and tears.  Ok, maybe not blood, but a lot of sweat and tears to get everything right.  The style, the fit, the skill of those who could actually sew the product in the right way to make it what it is. 

To look at it, one may see a bra, but to us, we see all of the design elements that finally came together to give us the size range we demanded.  We see pattern pieces that were graded once, then twice, then thrown out and started again to get the cup to fit without being pointy.  We see the numerous pieces (13 in fact) that are all hand cut – twice because it is lined – from a fabric that seems so delicate yet requires a special blade to cut through it.  We see the hours spent determining which stitching type would give flex where we needed it and strength somewhere else.  We see the components such as the slides on the straps and the specialty elastic all flame resistant and certified to endure the hottest, and most dangerous conditions and all sourced from USA manufacturers and made in the USA.  We see the design of the slide cover to bring additional protection and comfort for the consumer who will surely be wearing it in environmental conditions most would prefer to avoid.  We see the pending utility patent that will secure all of the hard work and dedication that went in to bringing this product from an idea to a reality that will provide the ultimate in protection to those who choose to wear it. 

Just a bra?  No, it is a badass protector of personal assets that works to keep women looking the same after a thermal incident as they did getting dressed that morning.  Women are working hard on the job and are making positive impacts in every workplace.  Seraphina Safety Apparel will continue working hard to create and develop safety apparel that protects and supports women along the way. 

Thank you OH&S for recognizing what it takes to be a change maker.  Congratulations to all of the winners whose efforts in making a difference have been rewarded.  We are happy to stand among all of them listed below:
