Vérité by Barco is the first Barco Uniforms’ collection to use arcDry™, which wicks moisture away to keep professionals dry and comfortable. arcDry emanates from Barco Uniforms’ arcTechnology or Advanced Research Clothing™ Technology, the science behind Barco Uniforms that gives customers greater uniform performance. In addition, many of the uniforms in the Spa Collection use arcTechnology™, including: arcFlex™, which gives the uniforms flexibility and the professionals who wear them freedom of movement that leaves each person looking and feeling their best even through the longest shift; and arcRelease™, which has a soil-release finish that helps lift the most challenging stains.
