SAFETY & STYLE
SHINE by Illuminate Designs products only use 3M ScotchLite for it's light reflectivity, the same that firefighters, police, and paramedics have to use in their uniforms for safety. Reflective material used by SHINE helps enhance the visibility of the wearer in nighttime or low-light conditions when illuminated by a light source, such as headlights, by returning the light back toward the original source and reaching the automobile driver's eyes.
The need for this product is very great, with unfortunate statistics proving this with increased pedestrian fatalities during the fall and winter months due to poor visibility as a major contributing factor. It was increasing news coverage of these types of stories and the realization that I was moving about the city in dark outerwear that motivated me to create SHINE.
