Material Exploration: CORDURA®

May 08, 2017 | By: Michael Andersen

Originally created by DuPont as a type of Rayon, and further developed during World War II as a material for tires, CORDURA® has seen its fair share of applications over the past 60 years. 

Today, CORDURA® is regarded as one of the most functional performance textiles available on the market and has been used extensively in the outdoor world in large part to its lightweight and durable strength. With an excellent resistance to fading, abrasion, rot and mildew, this fabric is incredibly quick drying and highly water repellent. 

When we set out to create the Cypress Collection, we immediately knew that we wanted to blend the proven durability and function of waxed canvas with the utility and performance of nylon CORDURA® across our favorite carry-alls. It's the perfect material combination for balancing work and play in your everyday life.
