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.
