Invista, Klopman Unveil Klopman Vantage Fabric

Wichita, Kan.-based integrated fibers and polymers manufacturer Invista has partnered with England-based polyester/cotton blended fabric manufacturer Klopman International to create Klopman Vantage workwear fabric featuring Cordura® brand technology.

Klopman Vantage twill fabric with Cordura — developed to meet a demand in the European workwear market for increased comfort in a durable, abrasion-resistant fabric that can be used for a complete garment — is made with an intimate blend comprising 50-percent Invista™ T420 Nylon 6,6 fiber and 50-percent combed cotton, and weighs 250 grams per square meter. According to the companies, the fabric has been tested by independent laboratories and has met the highest color retention and performance standards, withstanding 250,000 Martindale rubs without failure.

The fabric, which will be used to make trousers, coveralls and other apparel, will be available in khaki and black, with additional colors to be added later to the range.
