AF&Y Becomes Sole Telas Damar Supplier

Chapel Hill, N.C.-based American Fibers and Yarns Co. (AF&Y) is now the exclusive supplier of polypropylene yarns to Mexico-based upholstery fabric manufacturer Telas Damar S.A. C.V. As a result, Telas Damar has shut down its extrusion equipment to focus its resources on serving customers better and delivering fabric within two weeks of ordering.

In other company news, Joan Fabrics, Tyngsboro, Mass., has selected AF&Y’s Innova® — a man-made fiber with a cotton-like hand and luster — to use in a collection of ultra-performance fabrics, called Vibrant SP, for interior and casual residential furniture. Developed by AF&Y and Joan Fabrics, the fabrics are said to be stain-, mildew-, fade- and ultraviolet-resistant for up to 2,000 hours.

Additionally, AF&Y’s Marquesa® technology is now featured in Valley, Ala.-based Johnston Textiles Inc.’s Wellington Ultima Performance Finish Fabrics for the contract market. The fabrics are bleach-cleanable, stain- and bacteria-resistant, and have a barrier finish that repels fluids.
