Cordura has launched a fabric series in collaboration with leading Japanese bag brands. This is Cordura’s way of showing appreciation and support for Japanese craftsmanship. One collaboration is with CIE, a Japanese bag brand that has a military approach to carry solutions. Cordura’s NYCO fabric, which is used widely used in US military uniform applications, is integrated in CIE's designs. Cordura fabrics are used in products from apparel to bags, packs, and footwear.
In the first phase of the project, Cordura will release a video made in collaboration with a leading bag brand. Through close-up shots of the detailed work of artisans, from design planning to cutting and sewing, the video emphasizes the intricate detail and beauty of Japanese craftsmanship with Cordura fabric.
