Invista’s Cordura brand, a leading fabric brand from US for militaries across the globe, has announced that the company has bagged 50 awards at the recently held ISPO Textrends forum, the best platform for performance textiles by manufacturers, designers, and product managers, at Munich, Germany, for innovation across six key textile categories.

The Soft equipment category featured performance textiles for tents, backpacks, sleeping bags, shoes, with attributes like lightweight, durable, abrasion resistant, UV-protection and waterproof. Around 19 Cordura fabrics won the award. The recently launched Cordura TPX fabric by Chang Ho, a lightweight, specialist laminate fabric, was in the top ten list. Other winners were hardwearing Cordura Lite, Ballistic, Classic, and HP fabrics and the durable Cordura AFT knits for footwear from Mifer, Italy.

The Street Sports category covered everything from denim with new performance levels, to lighter functional fabrics and finishes with a fashionable edge.

Ten Cordura fabrics were chosen as winners in this category, including Cordura Combat Wool Denim from Artistic Milliners, a streetwise performance denim combining durability of nylon, the natural warmth properties of wool, and the comfort of cellulosic fibre. The winning fabrics included long-lasting comfort-driven Cordura Denims from Kipas, Turkey and the durable Cordura 4EVER fleece by Yoonia, Korea.

The Outer Layer category featured lightweight but ultra-resistant woven fabrics that provide protection against the elements. Winners included a range of ultra-lightweight Cordura Naturalle fabrics all under 80grams from Yoonia, LeeJo, and One Chang mills in Korea. Also highlighted was one of the new 60 per cent wool blend endurance Cordura Combat Wool suiting fabrics, from Italian specialists Marlane.

The Base Layer category showcased next-to-skin fabrics for technical underwear, with pre-shaping, support, thermal or moisture management performance offering all-important added values such as softness, comfort, anti-bacterial or eco-friendly properties. Yoonia, Korea succeeded in gaining top honours here with a best in category win for one of their silky-soft, durable Cordura 4EVER knits. Other fabrics recognised in this category include a Cordura Combat Wool knit fabric, made using the new nylon/merino Cordura brand qualifying yarns from Suedwolle Group, Germany.

In the Second Layer category, fleeces, lightweight protective fabrics, and performance linings was judged. The winner included a classic yarn dyed woven, Cordura 4Ever wool flannel shirting by Chia Her, Taiwan.

The Membranes and Coatings category showed textiles made with membranes and/or specialist coatings, including two-to-three layer fabrics with stretch that are waterproof, windproof and UV-resistant for ultimate protection. The Cordura brand picked up six awards, with recognitions for lightweight, water repellent Cordura Naturalle fabrics by One Chang and Yoonia, and for durable water resistant nylon/cotton blend Cordura NYCO fabrics from Samtex.
