HOW IT WORKS
Allergens and irritants have no place between the sheets. And to keep them out, we’ve developed a unique technology that prevents dust, dust mites, and associated allergens from entering your bed. It’s a barrier so effective, only air and moisture vapor are capable of passing through. Thanks to this revolutionary bedding, allergy sufferers have never slept more comfortably or been so well protected from irritants.
Meet Dusty, the dust mite. Here, he sits on top of Pristine fabric. Try as he mite…er a, sorry…he just cant find a way to crawl through Pristine. This photo provides the best evidence of how Pristine fabrics work! But, let us prove it to you!
THE PRISTINE TECHNOLOGY
Pristine fabrics are constructed of very tightly woven yarns, specially selected to give the best balance of softness, comfort, and color fastness. Our unique finishing process allows these finely-textured yarns to create extremely small pores in the fabrics. Such micro-pores allow air and moisture vapor to pass through, but small enough to form a barrier to dust, dust mites, and associated allergens. Pristine fabrics are not coated, laminated or otherwise given any finish that can come off during use.
Pristine was developed as a result of extensive research and evaluation at two highly respected colleges of medicine:
• University of Virginia, Department of Medicine, Asthma & Allergic Diseases Center
• University of South Florida, Department of Medicine, Division of Allergy and Immunology

Results of Laboratory Testing with Heavy Doses of
Dust Mites and Dust Mite Allergens
“The results indicate that (Pristine) compared with the control, prohibited Dp M migration and Der p1 allergen accumulation. The (Pristine) anti-allergic pillows, compared with the controls, are effective filtering Dermatphagoides pteronyssinus mites and Der p1 allergens.”
Pristine fabrics are routinely tested at an independent lab,
IBT Reference Laboratory, to ensure allergen barrier performance.
Doses of Dust Mites and Dust Mite Allergens
“Pristine transferred less than the detection limit of
3.9 nanograms of dust mite allergen.”
