Predictions are that in the following years nanotechnology will be widely applicated in industrial processes, and that the amount of such products will greatly increase. NanoTrade, Ltd. was established in Olomouc in the year 2004. The company's mission is to commercialize innovative materials, products and processes based on nanotechnology, which are the result of research, technology and development of laboratories in the Czech Republic and abroad. NanoTrade, Ltd. is currently focusing on: collaboration with R&D institutions in the Czech Republic, Poland, Austria, Germany and Great Britain, testing and developing new materials, technologies and application processes in all levels,  providing tests of certification in collaboration with certification authories, production of new nanomaterials, analysis, definition and projects preparation, definition of production program, marketing, consulting services, trading activity in nanotechnology products.Another kind of NanoTrade activity is creating clothes using nanofibres. Nowadays the increasing market competition and customers' conscious choices are causing the change of products and a neccesity of finding new solutions. Popularity of  spending time actively created a need for using specific clothes and NanoTrade products seem to provide a good response to these requirements. This presentatnion shows a new collection of garments dedicated especially to people who do sports and workout at the gym. Collection made with Nanosilver®  and  Coolmax® fibres is a modern high performance sportswear with great cooling and antibacterial properties. The Coolmax fibre is very effective at conducting sweat away from the body without getting soaked wet. The moisture is transported to the surface where it rapidly evaporates, keeping the underlying skin dry. Nanosilver® yarn, the second component of the garment, prevents growth of bacteria and the resulting unpleasant odour. Silver has been proven to be effective against bacteria and moulds. This feature remains active for the lifetime of the garment.  Fiber composition: 52% Coolmax®, 48% Nanosilver®
