Fabrics, always combining performance and style, are the natural choice for applications ranging from awnings and tents to marine fabrication, outdoor structures, indoor architecture, arts and apparel, medical and aerospace products, to name just a few. For our annual two-part showcase, we asked our contributors to send us information about their latest high-performance materials: fabrics that weather the storm, fight use and abuse and help keep the planet green—all while looking good and making perfect economic sense. We’ve organized their information into performance categories, and Part 1 pubished April 1. Part 2 of the showcase will cover water repellence, flame retardance, UV protection, activewear applications and printability and will publish on May 1.
