Invista's Cordura brand has been honoured with more than 50 awards in its 50th anniversary year at ISPO Textrends, securing its first best in category product win with Cordura 4ever knit by Yoonia (Korea).

In total, 51 Cordura fabrics across six key textile categories were selected as winners. These cutting-edge fabrics are currently on display at ISPO Textrends, as part of the ISPO Munich exhibition, which is taking place this week.

Base Layer

This category features next-to-skin fabrics for technical underwear, with pre-shaping, support, thermal or moisture management performance. Softness, comfort, anti-bacterial or eco-friendly properties are added values.

Cordura 4evert Knit fabrics from Yoonia were honoured in this category with Best Product and three additional recognitions. Cordura 4ver knits are the latest addition to the Cordura fabric portfolio. Also selected was a Cordura Combat Wool knit fabric made using the new nylon/merino Cordura brand qualifying yarns from Suedwolle Group.

Innovation and collaboration

Many of the winning fabrics selected were in the soft equipment category, a reflection of the Cordura brand's durable heritage, which has its roots in technical backpacks. According to the manufacturer, recognitions in categories such as Membranes & Coatings, Street Sports and Base Layer showcase the versatility of modern Cordura fabrics and how the brand continues to innovate fabric technologies with a focus on endurance and lifestyle apparel applications.

"We are pleased to see how our valuable authorized mills are being recognized for their dedication to creating long-lasting, durable Cordura fabrics, and we are truly humbled to receive a record-breaking 51 awards in our 50th year," said Cindy McNaull, global Cordura Brand and Marketing Director.

"We believe the future of innovation is collaboration, and as we celebrate this major milestone in our brand's history, we are dedicated to developing the next generation of durable solutions together."
