Invista’s Cordura brand claimed a total of 21 award wins across 13 categories with 19 fabrics, at the recent three shows, ISPO Textrends, the Functional Fabric Fair, and Performance Days 2021.

Cordura had 16 ISPO Textrends wins across 10 categories, making this the seventh consistent year of multiple winning entries at the key platform for performance textiles for apparel and gear Autumn/Winter 2022/23. 

The brand also won five awards at the recent Functional Fabric Fair and Performance Days shows held  in Portland, Oregon, and Munich, Germany, respectively. Both are premier marketplaces for CEOs, designers and product development executives to source the most current innovations in high performance functional fabrics, finishes, trims and accessories.

“We are once again delighted to see our latest Cordura fabrics recognised by digital forums and in-person events that are valued for the presentation of new and innovative materials,” said Cindy McNaull, Cordura business development director. “We make it a priority to continually bring new ideas and products to our brand and retail partners. As the world evolves, we know a large piece of that will fall within stewardship and sustainability. We’ve put this work at the front of our efforts, so to have our new Cordura re/cor RN66 fabrics recognised in these awards was a special honour.”

Cordura recently announced the debut of Cordura re/cor RN66, urging the industry to ‘Expect More, Waste Less.’ Currently available in 36 on trend colours for Autumn/Winter 2023, the new recycled nylon 6.6 collection is durable, responsible and engineered to last.  In terms of quantifiable benefits compared to virgin nylon 6.6, the production of Cordura re/cor RN66 decreases greenhouse gas emissions by 83%, consumes 82% less energy, and uses 57% less water. It is made from 100% pre-consumer fibre material that is 100% GRS (Global Recycled Standard) certified.
