B$Z: Flowfold Designs Accessories Using Fabrics That Are Stronger Than Steel

Founded on a Maine island, trending outdoor brand Flowfold uses specialized materials to build durable and lightweight carrying accessories.

Since 2011, Flowfold has sourced advanced fabrics to build wallets and bags in their Maine factory. The cloths they use are developed with the same technology that has revolutionized the performance of multi-million dollar racing boats like those in the America's Cup.



The application of this material in the outdoor industry is significant. The fabric has a higher tensile strength than steel, with remarkable durability due to an inner matrix of Kevlar and Carbon. These strong inner fibers are arranged in a progressive Diamond-shaped pattern, which has brought the Flowfold team to nickname the fabric: DiamondFiber.



Flowfold is the leading innovator of products made with this technology in the outdoor industry. They back the strength of their materials and craftsmanship with a Lifetime Warranty. The brand will be at Outdoor Retailer at Booth BR616, and looks forward to expanding their line of carrying accessories in 2015.
