Awards Profile: COBMEX® Contemporary Collection

COBMEX®’s Contemporary Collection, a 2022 Innovation Award winner for garment comfort, is a modern take on corporate knitwear. The design team researched runway trends as well as the needs of corporate employees to build products that employees would want to wear, resulting in specific fibers and a lightweight knit construction that would give garments a retail hand without compromising durability.

Of course, updating the fit was also a priority, and COBMEX accomplishes this with slimmer silhouettes and unique design details that highlight the contemporary aspect of the collection.

The yarn in COBMEX®’s Contemporary Collection is not the only material tested for harmful substances. Every component used in the manufacture must meet the highest standards, from the thread to the labels and trims. The testing process is conducted by independent OEKO-TEX® partner institutes and is based on the widely recognized OEKO-TEX® criteria catalog. These tests consider regulated and non-regulated potentially harmful substances. This criterion is updated at least once a year and expanded as and when new scientific knowledge and statutory requirements become available.
