Invista’s Cordura brand has been honoured with more than 50 awards in its 50th anniversary year at the ongoing ISPO Textrends expo, in Munich, from February 5 to 8, 2017. Cordura won its first “best in category product” award with Cordura 4Ever knit by Yoonia (Korea). In total, 51 Cordura fabrics across six key textile categories were selected as winners.

Cordura fabrics were awarded for a wide range of performance and technical properties across several ISPO categories. Under Soft Equipment category, 19 Cordura fabrics were recognised as lightweight, durable, abrasion resistant, UV- protection, and waterproof.
Among the top 10 winners in this category is the recently launched Cordura TPX fabric by Chang Ho, which is a lightweight, specialised laminate fabric. Others selected as winners in this category are hardwearing Cordura Lite, Ballistic, Classic, and HP fabrics showing a modern spin on authentic Cordura bag and pack fabrics.

Under the Street Sports category, Ten Cordura fabrics were chosen as winners, including Cordura Combat Wool Denim from Artistic Milliners offering the durability of nylon and the natural warmth properties of wool, part of the latest Cordura brand “brand authentic alchemie” collection, technical performance, comfort driven Cordura denims from Kipas, Turkey.

In the Outer Layer category, featuring lightweight but ultra-resistant woven fabrics that provide protection against the elements, winners include ultra-lightweight Cordura Naturalle fabrics all under 80gsm from Yoonia, LeeJo, and One Chang mills in Korea.

Under the Base Layer category, Cordura 4VER knits are latest addition to the Cordura fabric portfolio. Also selected was a Cordura Combat Wool knit fabric made using the new nylon/merino Cordura brand qualifying yarns from Suedwolle Group.

Spotlighted in the Second Layer category are fleeces, lightweight protective fabrics, and performance linings usable for maximum thermal characteristics. Cordura 4EVER wool flannel shirting by Chia Her was among the category winners, which provides enhanced warmth, comfort, and abrasion resistance.

Technical membranes are featured in Membranes and Coatings category, often including two-to-three layer fabrics with stretch that are waterproof, windproof, and UV-resistant for ultimate protection against the elements. The Cordura brand was awarded six times in this category; including recognitions for lightweight, water repellent Cordura Naturalle fabrics by One Chang and Yoonia, as well as durable water resistant nylon cotton blend Cordura NYCO fabrics from Samtex.
