Named after the famous nurse and champion for health hygiene, the Nightingale brand was founded in early 2019 on the philosophy of promoting a healthier lifestyle through natural, everyday products.
While exploring creative ways to incorporate natural resources into health and wellness accessories, Nightingale became particularly intrigued with copper as a potentially sustainable solution for clean, healthy living.
Manufacturing partner Renfro Corporation had extensive experience with the technology in its copper-embedded socks and was poised to ramp up production on a new, innovative product.
When the effects of COVID-19 hit close to home in the spring of 2020, Nightingale immediately began reaching out to see where they could help. The brand didn’t have to look far.
