INVISTA’S CORDURA Denim, Duck and Naturalle fabrics were recently voted into the world’s largest innovative materials library, Material ConneXion. Through a majority vote by a creative and materials professional panel, CORDURA fabric was awarded three Certificates of Materials Excellence.

“The Material ConneXion library contains some of the most advanced and innovative materials in the world,” said Dr. Andrew H. Dent of Material ConneXion. “Our monthly jury comprised of experts from diverse fields selects the materials providing an impartial choice. The panel of experts recognizes high quality materials and we are pleased to have CORDURA fabrics in our innovative collection.”

Material ConneXion will display the accredited CORDURA brand fabrics in ten locations: New York, Bangkok, Beijing, Cologne, Daegu, Istanbul, Milan, Seoul, Shanghai and Skövde. In addition, a corresponding entry will be available via Material ConneXion’s online database providing a description of the materials. Fortune 500 companies, architects, designers and other textile-focused clientele rely on Material ConneXion’s library and consulting services.

“We are honored to be selected by such a prestigious materials library, Material ConneXion,” said Cindy McNaull, global CORDURA brand marketing director. “Our fabrics are consistently chosen by outdoor, military, workwear, footwear, and performance apparel customers when durability counts. We are eager to expand our horizons and introduce our innovative, performance-driven CORDURA fabrics to the design community through Material ConneXion’s extensive Library of Innovative Materials.”

The three CORDURA brand fabrics selected for the Materials Library are:

CORDURA Naturalle fabric

Made with high-tenacity, full-dull nylon 6,6 fiber technology, CORDURA Naturalle fabrics provide a natural, cotton-like hand and appearance with durable, long-lasting performance. CORDURA Naturalle fabrics offer enhanced tear and abrasion resistance and are available in woven and knit constructions, including moisture management, DWR, laminates, as well as two and four way stretch technologies.

CORDURA Duck fabric

CORDURA Duck fabrics are designed for clothing that requires an extremely comfortable yet durable and wearable fabric solution. CORDURA Duck fabric can take the punishment inflicted at work or on the weekend, while also providing long lasting comfort.

CORDURA Denim fabric

Based on an intimate blend of cotton and INVISTA’S T420 nylon 6.6 fiber, CORDURA Denim fabric helps hard-working jeans last longer. Jeans made with CORDURA Denim fabric are exceptionally durable without compromising on comfort and style.
