US: Crailar in development deal with Cotswold Industries
Crailar Technologies has entered into an agreement with Cotswold Industries to develop sustainable pocketing and waist banding for its apparel customers.
South Carolina-based Central Textiles, a subsidiary of Cotswold Industries, will process and weave the Crailar flax fibre for the product line.
"We continue to identify new market opportunities for Crailar that fit into both long-term category opportunities and increased brand awareness," said Crailar Technologies CEO Ken Barker.
"Cotswold is exactly that kind of partner in terms of its work with global brands, its specialization in the area we are developing with the company, and the opportunity to grow therein."
Privately-owned Cotswold Industries supplies textiles for industrial, nonwovens, apparel and technical applications to retailers including Levi Strauss & Co, VF Corp, Abercrombie & Fitch and JC Penney.
"Partnering with Crailar fits perfectly within our corporate strategy to be a leader in environmentally conscious textile manufacturing," said Cotswold Industries CEO James McKinnon.
