(Fla.) — A Florida husband and wife duo who developed a fashion line of bulletproof clothing say they have seen the demand for their products in the U.S. increase exponentially — and amid growing security concerns, they believe the market still has untapped potential.
Miguel Caballero created MC Armor, a branch of his Colombian based company that focuses on ballistic-resistant clothing that includes items from jackets and accessories to children’s apparel. Leading the U.S. market efforts is his wife, Carolina Ballesteros.
“It’s fashion,” Ballesteros told ABC News. “But it’s fashion with protection.”
Since starting the business in 1992, Ballesteros said the profile of MC Armor’s customers has already changed. “Now we get a lot more celebrities and politicians,” she explained.
