"Consumers look for authenticity in people, in brands and in turn, in the fabrics they want to wear," said Leverton. "The trick to future success in the textile industry is for manufacturers and mills to stick to what they do best. CORDURA® brand has done just that with the "Authentic Alchemie" Collection, focusing on its core - durability - but extending that to versatile, cross-functional denim innovations."
The "Authentic Alchemie" Collection merges elemental durability of CORDURA® fiber with mystical transformation, creation and combination. These technical denims are developed from carefully crafted blends of natural and man-made fibers to deliver stylish, versatile, high performance and functional materials.
"Today's consumer is searching beyond just traditional heavy denims for ones that can sit comfortably with them throughout the day - wherever it may take them," said Cindy McNaull, global CORDURA® brand and marketing director. "The 'Authentic Alchemie' Collection is designed to push the boundaries of durability with stylish, modern and comfortable fabric combinations that are suitable for any product, market or lifestyle."
Focusing on three key trends and features for denim in 2017, the “Authentic Alchemie” Collection is designed to keep the future real.
