Dual Technologies

Breaking through your limits starts with breakthrough gear. Introducing cotton combos featuring two performance all-stars. Option one: Unite TransDRY® and TOUGH COTTON™ technologies for a double boost of moisture-wicking action and increased durability. Option two: Bring together the performance power of STORM COTTON™ and TOUGH COTTON™ technologies for a durable duo that provides a water-repellant finish with superior abrasion resistance – all while maintaining the natural comfort and breathability of cotton.

Studio 317 x Cotton

Cotton Incorporated is teaming up with Studio 317 to highlight a few of our favorite cotton performance technologies in a creative garment collection. Let the collection inspire you with the latest fabric developments from the FABRICAST™ collection, including unique stitching and bonding techniques that elevate the designs. These men’s and women’s pieces feature both STORM COTTON™ and TransDRY® technologies that offer top performance in one-of-a-kind styles.

Microplastic Alternatives

As the issue of microfiber and microplastic pollution continues to spread, consumer awareness also grows. As a result, consumers often look to brands and retailers to make the next move. So, what can we do?

Cotton Incorporated has developed viable alternatives to synthetic microfiber fleece through the creation of cotton and cotton/wool blend fabrics. From the earth and returning to earth, these natural fibers break down in soil and wastewater environments.1 More research is underway to confirm their breakdown in salt and freshwater environments. Stop by booth 53095-UL for more insight into the latest research and to view our full FABRICAST™ collection.
