Clemson Apparel Research (CAR) was established to revitalize the domestic sewn-products industry through the proper application of advanced technology and management practices. It is now a premier national resource for high-performance textiles and related materials research and applications. Its fast-turn manufacturing and supply chain optimization solutions are being applied very effectively to industries other than sewn products.
CAR helped us develop the next generation of our VaprThrm® - vapor barrier liner socks using their bonding technology. The development helped us offer a sock that has increased comfort and moisture resistance. Clemson has been able to supply us with this unique product on a just-in-time basis. These socks have been sold to adventurers around the globe via www.rbhdesigns.com.
