Next Generation Performance Cotton

CORDURA® Brand and Cotton Incorporated Debut Next Generation Performance Cotton

Performance Cotton

INVISTA's CORDURA® brand and Cotton Incorporated are continuing to collaborate with the debut of woven and knit blended performance natural fabrics featuring specialty moisture managing TransDRYTM and STORM COTTONTM technologies from Cotton Incorporated. The technologies combine the tried and true, long-lasting durability of CORDURA® fiber and the comfort of cotton. These state-of-art, quick-dry performance fabrics are the latest additions to the portfolio of fabrics based on intimate blend CORDURA® NYCO fabric technology. The collaboration is another milestone in the CORDURA® brand's 50th anniversary celebration and will debut at Summer Outdoor Retailer Show (CORDURA® brand booth #39212 and Cotton Incorporated booth #38037).

More than two in three consumers (67 percent) say performance features are important in their clothing purchase decisions according to the Cotton Incorporated 2016 U.S. Activewear Study. "Continuing with the theme of innovation through collaboration in our 50th anniversary year, we are thrilled to debut an exciting next chapter in our 'performance naturals' collaboration with the talented team at Cotton Incorporated," said Cindy McNaull, global CORDURA® brand and marketing director. "When you combine CORDURA® brand durability with the hidden science of TransDRYTM and Storm COTTONTM technologies, 'the fabric of our lives' seamlessly takes on a whole dimension of long lasting comfort."
