The Awards Gala, previously called the ITMA Awards Gala, took place on 5 December at High Point Country Club in High Point, NC, and benefited the ITA Educational Foundation. Showtime, High Point’s Semi-Annual Fabric Market, is produced by and for the members of the ITA twice a year, and brings all segments of the home furnishings industry together.

Research and performance

“Being recognised by the ITA for Best in Innovation for our performance technology is an honour, and the credit goes to our wonderful team of scientists, researchers and business development teams,” said Randy Rubin, Crypton chairman and co-founder. 

“We applied Crypton’s more than 20 years of experience in producing performance fabrics into developing a product line for the home that would stand out and stand up to the true test – the consumer.”

Rubin, who founded The Crypton Companies more than 20 years ago to provide cutting-edge technologies for contract performance textiles, oversees not only the Crypton Home business, but also the contract business, Crypton Fabric, which has sold over 150 million yards globally, and the Nanotex brand, which specialises in performance technologies for apparel and consumer goods.


The Crypton Companies have patented and branded environmentally responsible textile performance solutions since 1993. The company’s flagship product, Crypton Fabric, revolutionized the use of fabrics in the healthcare, hospitality, government, education and contract segments, the company reports.

Crypton Home fabric is a leading provider of fabrics for the home furnishing industry and available at national retailers. The Crypton Companies continue to expand globally through technological advances in diversified market segments and are represented in more than 20 countries.

Leadership, networking and education

Positioned at the centre of the textile, leather and trimmings industries, ITA is focused on providing resources and opportunities to its membership that promote industry advancement through education, awareness, advocacy and technology.

While the Showtime event is a key benefit of membership, the organisation also provides a variety of leadership, networking and educational opportunities designed to support individual member businesses, as well as advance the industry.
