Engineering advances in fabrics and nanotechnology lead to a fabric that can brush away pollen.

Men’s suits made of the new fabric by Japanese textile firm Miyuki Keori should be available in late summer.

Through the attachment of 30-nanometer particles to the surface of threads in the new fabric, a garment made from the fabric becomes resistant to pollen.

The particles are small enough to prevent pollen from getting into the material. People wearing a pollen-resistant garment would then not be bringing as much sneeze-inducing pollen wherever they go.

More than 35 million Americans suffer from pollen allergies like hay fever.
