Why? The Story

We had to do something…
In face of this tragic reality, we decided some light should be brought to this problem! We couldn’t let things get darker and two years ago we had the idea of increasing the safety of “low-light living creatures”, such as runners, cyclists, walkers, trekkers, workers… through illuminated smart clothing. Multi‑purpose top‑notch illuminated clothing seemed the perfect candidate for the mission and that’s how MUSGO was born.

MUSGO cool design incorporates optical fibers that constitute the core of the illumination system and is based in 3 precepts:
Safety | Smart illumination for increased visibility Innovation | Outstanding design and premium materials combined to integrate wearable technology and provide unrivaled performance Sustainable | Low carbon footprint resulting from the upcycle of dead stock materials.
