Flamebuster Basic

The Flamebuster fabric is for sure the 'best of the best'.

Flamebuster was the first fabric that was developed by ROOTS; initially for the demanding offshore oil & gas industry. We knew we could make the difference! Flamebuster outperforms all comparable fabrics in the market place. Although the fabric is constructed of 100% cotton it has unmatched results in terms of shrinkage; ofter even better than most cotton rich fabrics in the market today.
