Abstract (en)

The present invention relates to a clothes hanger having two arms (2) and hooking means (3) connected centrally to the two arms (2) so as to support the clothes hanger (1) in a raised manner. The clothes hanger (1) also comprises a distribution member (7) which is connected to the arms (2) underneath the hooking means (3) in a central zone (5) of the clothes hanger (1). The distribution member (7) has an inlet mouth (8), designed to receive a flow of air from air supply means (10) associated with it during a drying step, and an outlet mouth (9) designed to expel said air flow towards the article of clothing (20). By so doing, the air flow allows drying, in the hung position, of the articles of clothing (20) which are placed wet on the clothes hanger (1). Advantageously the arms (2) are provided with a plurality of grooves (11) designed to allow air to flow towards a zone (14) where the article of clothing (20) is held on the clothes hanger (1), situated above the arms (2). <IMAGE>
