FAQ - Fabric Tech

What is FIONx?

FIONx is our proprietary high-tech scrub fabric that ensures you look your best, feel your best and perform at your best 24/7, 365 days a year. It features Silvadur™ antimicrobial technology, four-way stretch, moisture-wicking, anti-wrinkle, liquid repellent and ridiculously soft properties.

What is FIONe.a.c. ?

Made with recycled polyester and 25 plastic water bottles per scrub set, our limited-edition proprietary FIONe.a.c. fabric is ultra-lightweight and combines Silvadur™ antimicrobial technology, four-way stretch, moisture-wicking, anti-wrinkle and liquid repellent properties. It’s good for the planet and good for you.

Plus, it’s engineered with specialty cationic yarns that give it a slight heathered effect.

The “e.a.c.” stands for “Environmentally Awesome Collection” — a collection that’s only available on our FIGS App. Download it below for access (plus access to future exclusive collections!).

What's the difference between FIONx and FIONe.a.c.?

Our classic FIONx scrub fabric is ridiculously soft, while our FIONe.a.c. scrub fabric (Environmentally Awesome Collection) is ridiculously lightweight and more slick and smooth to the touch.

Performance wise, both have all the same technological properties: Silvadur™ antimicrobial technology, four-way stretch, moisture-wicking, anti-wrinkle and are liquid repellent. One FIONe.a.c. scrub set is made from 25 plastic bottles, creates 75% less CO₂ emissions, saves 3 gallons of water, lowers demand for petroleum extraction and arrives in 100% compostable packaging.

It’s also limited edition and only available on the FIGS App, here:

Can the FIONe.a.c. collection be ironed?

No, we do not recommend you iron our FIONe.a.c. fabric — while it is quite durable, it's made of some recycled materials and plastics that should not be exposed to extreme heat like ironing. You can still wash and dry like normal!

What does FIONdry mean?

FIONdry is our proprietary moisture-wicking technology that’s infused into select styles of FIGS. These styles use capillary action to carry moisture away from the skin and onto the fabric — where it evaporates in no time! In simpler terms, it helps you stay fresh and less sweaty.

What does FIONstorm mean?

FIONstorm is our proprietary water repellent technology that keeps liquid on the surface so you can weather anything — rain, coffee, snow and yes, even those unmentionable liquids.

What does FIONtherma mean?

FIONtherma is our proprietary warming technology that warms your core with advanced insulation, temperature regulating properties and tightly knit fibers so you’re ready for winter or unruly air conditioning.

What does SuperSoft mean?

They’re ridiculously soft fabrics that feel like a hug and are engineered with the highest quality yarns.
