The evolution of scrub suits and what’s next

evolution of scrub suits

A brief history into scrub suits

You’d be forgiven for not being aware of the history and evolution of scrub suits, but surprisingly, they have quite a long, potted history! Here at Harveys we’re interested in how far the humble scrub has come, as it really has developed significantly.

The first scrub suit dates back as far as the 1940’s, when they were first used within medical practices. This was to limit infections, as sanitary understanding developed where open wounds and operations were involved.

Of course, as the ever-changing, modernising world develops, so do scrub suits. This article will walk you through the developments and delve into what’s next for all things scrub suits!

How scrub suits are modernising

We’ve found particularly over the past decade, that scrub suits in terms of their manufacturing and design are modernising, which is great. Europe producers are currently leading the way in modern scrub designs. As we import our scrubs clothing, this ensures our designs are always the most up-to-date and, keeping with current trends and personalisation.

As much as workwear scrubs are essential for practicality and ease of movement for the wearer, certain professions don’t require the same practicality, which allows for a trendier, more modern approach. We tend to find the professions that prefer personalised, more modern scrubs are

  • Dentists
  • Physiotherapists
  • Spa and beauty professionals
  • Nail technicians
  • Self-employed small business owners

These professions allow for a more fashionable and comfortable scrub uniform, hence why they give a much more relaxed, modern, less clinical look than their strict medical counterparts.

Premier’s Onna range scrub

Premier’s ‘limitless’ Onna range scrub is an excellent option for the client who wishes to achieve a professional look, but also includes a hint of fashion, as well as the conformity that comes with a usual scrub.  Whilst the Onna range is comprised of scrubs, we designed them with a comfortable, stylish tunic in mind, to provide the relaxed, modern-day feel.

We’re proud to distribute a unisex design, so both men and women can wear the designs at work. The range includes:

Why we distribute the Onna range scrub

To provide modernised, durable and comfortable healthcare uniforms, we decided on the Onna range. We wanted to ensure both the top half and bottom half of each wearer were flexible, comfortable and confident in what they wore each day throughout their profession.

The emphasis was to be on each piece being modern, from sourcing, to marketing the garment. Not only are the materials used to make them eco-friendly (using recycled fibres) sustainable and provide comfort, but the design and features enable this too.

For example, with the ‘Relentless’ cargo pants, the fit is very modern, with hemmed side vents, which provide a tailored look and feel. The breathability and moisture-wicking comfort each piece provides means that you feel supported, comfortable and confident all day, every day.

We’re also delighted to stock each of the scrubs and accompanying garments in at least five different colours, as well as offering inclusivity of sizes, ranging from a size XS – 3XL.

A huge part of what we do is helping you to feel confident in choosing the perfect workwear scrubs for you and your teams. Our lines are always open, so please feel free to contact us today, either through our website, email or by calling one of our team on 0161 624 9535.
