by Annie 13. August 2015 16:06

 

MMI Textiles, Inc. exhibited at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market for the first time last week! Our team traveled to Salt Lake City for the four day show geared towards all things outside. Companies from around the world travel to this show to find out what new innovations and products are making their way on to the outdoor scene.

We got the chance to meet and talk with a wide variety of companies that aren’t always at the annual shows we attend. We took this opportunity to show case our impressive products like Unequal® Military and our digital print capabilities to companies who could be utilizing them for their tactical and hunting needs.

The show was an exciting experience for MMI and we look forward to being back next year. In the meantime, to find out more about MMI and all of our offerings, call our team at 440.899.8050 or email us at info@mmitextiles.com

Digital Printing at MMI...

by Annie 4. August 2015 11:48

Exciting things are happening at MMI Textiles! See below to read a recent post on Soldier Systems highlighting our digital printing capabilities --

 

This sample of Valdyr camouflage was digitally printed on Durastretch 520V by MMI Textiles. You may recognize the pattern from Revision Military’s Kinetic Operations Suit built for USSOCOM’s TALOS program.

The Durastretch 520V is actually a lighterwight fabric than you’d think. It’s a Berry compliant, 5.3 oz, 90% Nylon/10% Spandex ripstop, stretch fabric. I’m hoping to see someone make something out of it soon (hint, hint Trey and Tom!).

MMI Textiles offers a variety of fabric printing capabilities including the digital print option seen above. 

Be sure to visit them at Outdoor Retailer Summer Market, August 5th-8th in Salt Lake City, Utah – Booth #355-304.

Urban Tactical Wolf Gray

by Annie 22. July 2015 09:46

The tactile environment is always changing and evolving, and MMI Textiles, Inc. is committed to stay up to date with what is current. The new color, “wolf gray” was created within the industry to be less intimidating than black, camouflage and ranger green.

 

The urban tactical wolf gray is popular within the DEA, FBI, SWAT, and other law enforcement officers. Wolf gray is meant to look like wet concrete, near the color values of asphalt, reflective glass, and steel. It is adaptive for a variety of lightconditions when you want to blend in during the daytime and for concealment at night.

 

All of our products meet military specifications and are Berry compliant. We stock 500D and 1000D Nylon/Mil-spec, Nylon webbing in a variety of widths, Nylon sew on Hook and Loop, and raschel mesh.

To find out more about Wolf gray or purchase fabric in this color, call 440.899.8050 or email info@mmitextiles.com

Back to the Basics...

by Annie 23. June 2015 11:43

The textile industry is a versatile one, with new fabrics and products emerging all the time. It can be easy to forget the things that give MMI Textiles, Inc. and the rest of the historic fabric industry such a strong background and solid base.

Because words like “cotton”, “nylon”, and “Cordura” are used so frequently, they are often looked past and their importance taken for granted. MMI Textiles supplies only the best cottons and nylons in different kinds, deniers, and colors.

New innovations like digital printing and high-tech laminations are what enhances the textile industry and keeps it growing. Balancing these new innovations with the robust, already-existing market for woven fabrics is what MMI does best. With over 80 years of experience with woven fabrics, MMI Textiles has mastered how to continue growing its woven fabric inventory while introducing new and exciting products, prints, and ways of production.

To see all MMI has to offer, the new and the old, email info@mmitextiles.com or call 440.899.8050
