Japan kids get stab-resistant clothes - PCstats.com Japan kids get stab-resistant clothes
Mon, July 26 2004 | 4:46PM | PermaLink Feedback?
A Japanese company has begun making stab-resistant coats and sweatshirts as fears about public safety rise following a series of gruesome attacks. Madre, the maker, said it was providing the products in response to requests from worried parents. The jackets and tops look ordinary, but are made from fibre-glass and 'Specter' - a treated plastic used in bullet-proof vests. But they are not cheap, costing 43,900 Yen ($400) for a child's wind-breaker. A child's sweatshirt costs 38,900 Yen ($354), while both products cost 80,000 Yen ($729) for adults. Madre began selling the clothing through its website in May.
