Workwear manufacturer Carrington celebrated a double win at The Professional Clothing Awards in the Best Fabric and Fibre Innovation category. The ceremony took place as part of the Professional Clothing Show in London, which took place at London’s ExCel on 20-22 June.
Carrington’s Flamestat Satin 225 Pro2 won first place, with Flametougher 280AS fabric taking third place. Developed in close collaboration with Cordura fabric, Flametougher uses Cordura Nyco fabric technology.
Flametougher has been developed for workers operating in particularly challenging environments, such as oil refineries, where there is a demand for multi-norm fabrics with both flame retardant and antistatic properties.
Charles Wilson, sales manager at Carrington said: ‘‘The Professional Clothing Show was the perfect space for us to launch our two new flame retardant fabrics. The fact that both were winners in the Fabric and Fibre Innovation category at the awards is fantastic and I’m thrilled that we’ve walked away with an award for the second year running.’’
