Invista, Wichita, Kan., has debuted Cordura® denim fabric containing a blend of 88-percent Invista™
T420 nylon 6,6 fiber and 12-percent cotton. Cordura denim offers the look, feel and comfort of
100-percent cotton denim but is more durable, lasting 50- to 60-percent longer when industrial
laundered, and also is three times more abrasion-resistant, Invista reports.
Artistic Milliners (Pvt.) Ltd., a textile company based in Pakistan, will produce Cordura
denim fabric for use in full garments, which soon will be available in the United States.
