About the Brand

A brand that’s built to last.

For more than 45 years, CORDURA® fabrics have been selected by makers of high performance gear and apparel where durability counts.

It began in 1977 with the launch of CORDURA® brand 1000-denier air-jet textured nylon 6,6 yarns – a remarkably durable, yet practical fabric. Just a year later, JanSport® chose CORDURA® fabrics for their new line of daypacks. Giving the CORDURA® brand fabric line instant credibility. The rest, as they say, is history.

Today, you’ll find CORDURA® fabrics in many top brands that are known for making tough, long-lasting products. In fact, CORDURA® fabrics are trusted by many militaries around the globe.

Over the years, the CORDURA® brand team has introduced and perfected a wide-range of versatile fabrics. From the classic air-jet textured nylons to ultra-lightweight high tenacity nylon and polyester fabrics, all of our fabrics are considered best-in-class for durability and performance.

The future for INVISTA’s CORDURA® brand looks brighter than ever as it continues to expand into new categories. Which is no surprise. After all, engineering innovative fabrics is woven deeply into the CORDURA® brand DNA.
