Functional materials brand Cordura has increased accessibility to its digital fabric library, Fabric Finder, as it looks to engage new businesses keen to capitalise on the company’s product portfolio.
“We are excited to provide a customer-first experience that focuses on meeting the ever-growing digital needs of today’s designers. Countless fabric options lead to countless opportunities to build innovative new products and design with purpose,” Cindy McNaull, Business Development Director at Cordura, said.
Via an easy-to-use digital interface, the Fabric Finder library enables users to browse more than 2,500 certified Cordura materials freely, learning about the credentials of each fabric as they go. By opening this tool up to more firms then, Cordura believes it could assist in the creation of new commercial products “from footwear to active sports apparel”.
“COVID-19 has given us a chance to reset and rebuild something better than before. Experimentation, agility and entrepreneurial thinking are core values of Invista and the Cordura brand, and we have a continued focus on developing future-proof transformative tools,” said McNaull.
In particular, Cordura believes apparel designers will find great benefits from leveraging the library. Targeted emails will be distributed as new fabric innovations and mill partner collaborations are announced.
“Through the launch of this virtual platform we can quickly communicate the latest in Cordura advanced fabric solutions and sustainable innovations,” McNaull noted.
“Sustainability begins with products that last. And as we look to the future, were looking forward to having a broader more connected Cordura community as we create the next chapter of our sustainability journey.”
