A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:
Proof of Concept
Explorations that test ideas and functionality.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.
Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.
In cold winter days, a nice scarf is what most people would instantly reach for to keep one’s neck area warm. But before your neck starts to feel warm, it’ll take a little time before your body temperature warms up the scarf. So we thought, wouldn’t it be even better if this scarf could generate warmth on its own?
Active Portable Warmth
Instead of putting on layers of clothes “ just “ to keep your body temperature at best, there is a better way. SUSTAIN Sport Heated scarf generates heat higher than your body temperature to fight off coldness, proactively provides the heat your body needs to feel warm right when you need it!
SUSTAIN SPORT Heated scarf is a soft and lightweight scarf with an ultra-efficient graphene fiber heating core providing almost instant warmth. With the use of silver nano processed anti-bacterial fabrics, quick drying and breathable properties keep your neck comfortable at all times.
Quickly absorbs moisture to keep you dry under the scarf.
Quick adaption to climate changes
Drastic climate change affects all us all. The temperature can drop 29 Fahrenheit (15 degrees) from the mid-day to the evening. We know you want a hassle-free garment.
Graphene carbon fiber heating core, providing heat in 15 secs.
2 constant heat settings, 107 ℉/114℉ (42℃/46℃), can be easily toggled to fit your needs.
Silver nano processed fabrics
Silver nano is an effective agent in defending against bacteria. Since scarves are worn close to the mouth and nose area, it’s crucial to make this scarf anti-bacterial and allergen-free. ( Official test report included in the specs section )
Silver nano embedded particles protect against invading bacteria as soon as they are attached to the fabric.
Ultra slim and soft
Highly efficient and stable
Waterproof and durable
Graphene carbon fiber heating core

Stay warm working on your PC or laptop, using the USB extension cable to get warmth wherever there is a powered USB plug.
Easy to wear system - So quick and easy to wear
Never get tangled up in long scarves again! Long scarves are often very bulky around the neck and can take a while to wrap on and unwrap. SUSTAIN heated scarf's easy to wear system enables you to put it on and take it off within seconds. Magnets stitched within the scarf, no more bulky wrapping around. These 2 ways of wearing lets you quickly adapt to the environment, so if you frequently move in-between indoors and outdoors, just simply change between the 2 ways.
Far infrared emission
SUSTAIN SPORT heated scarf uses a special fabric that induces far-infrared (FIR) emission when heated. The merits of FIR is that the warmth penetrates deeper under the skin and it creates a microclimate in between the neck and the scarf, making the heated scarf comfortable to wear without feeling dryness during wearing.
After a long day at work spending a long time looking down on our smartphone and laptop, it is time to give your neck a good rest. Put on our comfortable warming scarf, sit back & relax the tense neck muscles. It is like the comfort of a hot towel on your neck, but it doesn’t get cold.
It is arguably the most efficient personal heater you can own. You are keeping yourself warm on the only 5w of power, instead of wasting over thousands of watts of power heating up the whole room that you can’t feel instantly.
Minimal, low keyed designed, it is so easy to match with your outfit.
SUSTAIN SPORT Heated Scarf comes in Steel grey, Navy and Red.
Premium packaging makes a perfect gift for every occasion.
Simply put in the power bank and press the button to start heating.
Started in 2013, HOMI CREATIONS was established for the causes of a seamless lifestyle we envision.
The SUSTAIN collection was established to create advanced clothing, we have chosen a scarf to be our first product, because we know how people depend on it for extra warmth and how it could be carried with easily. Utilizing advanced technology, we blend in between different industries, we add in fashion elements and design in the fabrics we use, relying on traditional stitching works to finish the final product. SUSTAIN SPORT is a perfect collaboration across technology, design, fashion, and craftsmanship.
To redefine the present way we live and things we use with simpler, easier, cleaner, minimalistic products, creating a modern and seamless lifestyle is what we envision and set out to achieve.
1. How do I clean SUSTAIN SPORT?
We recommend to clean with a damp cloth and leave it dry before use again. You can also hand-wash if you wish, only to make sure the power bank has been taken out and the USB cap is on. Do not dry clean or tumble dry.
2. Will it overheat with time?
The 2 heat settings are constant and they do not get hotter with time, for some sensitive groups, we suggest you to stop using it as soon as you feel the temperature is too high. 60 mins auto-shut off makes sure the contacted area gets a rest from heating.
3. How long will the heating last on one charge?
With our designated power bank ( 4000 mah ), it could last in between 3 - 3.5 hrs depending on the given temperature conditions.
You can also use the USB extension cable included to use your own power bank that might have a larger capacity.
4. How heavy is the scarf with the power bank?
The total weight is 205g, this is lighter than most of the thicker scarves. During our test trial we have 50 female across all ages to try the scarf, only 1 had shown concerns about the weight while others do not feel any difference in comparison with their own regular scarves.
5. Can I use my own power banks?
Yes, only our power bank is designed to put in to the hidden pocket in the scarf, if your power bank does not fit into the pocket, you can make use if the USB extension cable included.
With our own power bank, you will be able to operate the button on the scarf without switching on the power bank. For other power banks, you might have to switch on the power bank before pressing the button on the scarf.
Risks and challenges
During different development stages, we have faced problems and issues from all angles. First was working on the heating core, trying to tune the perfect balance in between the temperature and the usage, how do we push the usage time longer without sacrificing on the temperature, special thanks to our manufacturing partner for working with us on many many repeated attempts.
