- each year Best of NeoCon
celebrates outstanding new products from exhibiting companies, and is one of the most anticipated events in the industry calendar.
With this year’s show now in full swing, we are delighted to announce that we have received not one, not two, but three Best of NeoCon awards! A true honor, these recognitions of achievement were received in the Textiles category for:
- Best of NeoCon 2021, Gold: Awarded for our SEAQUAL Collection of fabrics, Oceanic and Quest are two textiles with one cause. With both fabrics created in partnership with the SEAQUAL Initiative to combat marine plastic pollution and achieve a waste free environment, they are woven entirely from post-consumer recycled plastic. Polyesters with a purpose, Oceanic is available to order now, while Quest will launch globally on October 18th 2021.
- Best of NeoCon 2021, Sustainability: Another accolade for our SEAQUAL Collection, this recognition of the environmental credentials of Oceanic and Quest was awarded for the part they play in reducing marine plastic pollution in a tangible way. To further assist in the fight against plastic waste, Camira makes a give-back donation directly to the SEAQUAL Initiative for every yard sold to support their work in cleaning our oceans.
- Best of NeoCon 2021, Innovation: Awarded to Camira Knit, our technical knitting brand, this element of our advanced technological capabilities holds the most exciting possibilities. With each Camira Knit creation custom made for an individual product, we have created bespoke textiles for some of the world’s largest manufacturers and their bestselling products – and we are delighted to have this innovative capability recognised by the Best of NeoCon panel.
