Création Baumann wins 2009 Innovation Prize

On the occasion of the home textiles (Heimtextil) fair in Frankfurt, the Langenthal textile company Création Baumann was awarded the AIT Innovation Prize for textiles for its new »Silver&Steel« collection, which was described as a product of high architectural quality.

The innovative aspect of »Silver&Steel« in textile terms is new technology for applying a coating of steel to the back of textiles. The steel-coated fabrics not only reduce the effects of light and heat, but are also washable and resistant to breaking and cracking.
