The Ins and Outs of Performance Fabric

11 am  |  Presentation

Performance fabrics, known for a long list of impressive qualities, are sought after now more than ever for indoor and outdoor applications. With so many meanings for ‘performance textiles’ in the market, it can be difficult to know which fabric is right for your client. Not all ‘performance’ is created equal. Attend the CEU presentation for an intro to the history and development of performance fabrics in the residential market. Explore the different varieties and purposes for each performance type. Enjoy a special preview of the first all-in-one performance fabric by InsideOut Performace Fabrics.
