Tents, awnings, shade sails, marine upholstery, protective gear, furniture: Regardless of the end product, the fabric needs to perform in harsh conditions while looking good, keeping the planet green and fitting into a client’s budget. For our two-part annual showcase, we asked contributors to send us information about their latest high-performance textiles. We’ve organized the information into categories, and Part 1 is included in this issue. In the May issue, Part 2 of the showcase will cover printability, strength, sustainability, UV protection and versatility.
This issue includes fabrics that emphasize:
• Health, Safety & Protective
• Water Repellency
• Flame Retardant
