Vau / Illuminated vest


Vau makes sure that school-children are not over-looked on their way home by day or by night, irrespective of the clothes they are wearing. Vau is made of two simple patterns, which are given three-dimensionality making sure they are visible from every angle. It is easy to put on and comfortable to wear and does not slip.
Children are able to individualise their Vau by applying some cut-out motives from a sticky reflector strip.
