Invisible force field!

The look, feel and breathability of the cloth remains the same, but stains and spills clean up quickly and easily, fabrics retain their colour and quality so they look better and last longer. It’s easy to clean, easy to care for and helps to lower the impact on the environment. Look out for the Teflon® fabric protector logo in the John Lewis school uniform range
