Flame-Resistant Cotton Sleepwear Offered By Carters

Carters, Morrow, Ga., has developed a new line of flame-resistant cotton sleepwear for young children. The new sleepwear is manufactured from Proban® cotton fabric, which has been used for over 15 years in clothing for adults. The use of Proban makes it possible to manufacture safe, but also comfortable and loose-fitting, cotton pajamas that conform to U.S. safety regulations applying to childrens sleepwear. The flame-resistant qualities are incorporated into the cotton fiber and are permanent. Carters new line is available in two-piece styles, with patterns created by blind Japanese artist Emu Namae in striking color combinations.We waited years to introduce flame-resistant cotton sleepwear because we wanted to develop a product that was safe, comfortable and affordable, said Fred Rowan, chairman and CEO, Carters. Over the years, we passed on alternative fabrics and fibers because they didnt meet our high standards. We are pleased to introduce such a superior product and know that it will set the standard for the industry.
