“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.”
