Cotton: The Fabric of Our… Responsible Sourcing Strategies
We all know The Touch, The Feel of Cotton, but were you aware that the U.S. cotton industry is one of the most technologically-advanced agricultural industries in the world, making considerable progress over the past 30 years to decrease the environmental impact of cotton production, and setting significant goals for continual improvement? Join Dr. Jesse Daystar, Chief Sustainability Officer of Cotton Incorporated, for this discussion of cotton and how it can be one of the most viable fibers to help achieve your company’s sustainability goals.

Performance Denim has become a legitimate category of its own, and we are focusing on the development of denim fabrics that function and move with your active lifestyles. Check out our latest concept fabrics, developed collaboratively with Cone Denim and Artistic Milliners, featuring blends with Cordura® and Dyneema® fibers for added durability and strength, while also incorporating our TransDRY® and Storm Cotton™ technologies for added value and performance.
Microfiber Fleece Alternatives
The issue of microfiber pollution is on everyone’s mind as companies look for alternatives with lower environmental impact. We’re developing viable solutions in cotton and cotton / natural fiber blends that have the ability to insulate and maintain warmth, while also offering biodegradable options to synthetics.
High Tech – Cooling & Comfort
With the objective of maintaining dryness inside and transporting moisture away from the body, our Wicking Windows™ technology is achieved through print application of repellent coverage areas onto the skin side fabric surface. A new adaptation of this method incorporates phase change material for added cooling properties combined with moisture transport.
The Fabricast™ collection is a biannual release of inspirational fabric ideas that incorporate new yarns, interesting woven or knit fabric structures, and unique dyeing and finishing techniques. The fabrics inspire and demonstrate the possibilities of cotton. Swatches are provided with full technical details to help you implement these ideas with your mill partners without delay. See the latest collection on display throughout the show.
