TVF Shoots Its Shot With Manufacturers in Vegas

As the scope of the annual SHOT Show in Las Vegas evolves, an adjacent event featuring hundreds of suppliers to shooting, hunting, and outdoor product makers has provided an intimate, but high profile platform for TVF. The SHOT Week Supplier Showcase has wrapped up and our sales team packed in countless conversations with industry professionals and manufacturers.

They also observed a few emerging trends and discovered some of our fabrics that were top of mind for makers of anything from tactical gear to protective articles to bags and cases to rugged equipment and beyond. Essentially, if manufacturers or officials in your industry wear a plate or carry a badge, we probably shared a few moments with them.

Here are a few takeaways:

Berry Compliant textiles are big
Companies and reps who wanted to find out more about materials made here with domestic yarns had informative conversations at the TVF booth. We offer a variety of Berry Compliant fabrics and can provide additional expertise if you reach out.

500 and 1,000 Denier fabrics were the “belles of the ball”
Of course, the rugged durable stuff was in-demand! Our sales consultants received heavy interest in textiles – like 1,000 and 500 Denier CORDURA® Classic – that can withstand the rigors of tactical gear, law enforcement, outdoor activities, firearms transport, self-defense, shooting sports, and more.

On-Shoring was a hot topic
Our team was approached by a number of companies who buy textiles overseas interested in buying more Made in USA and Berry Compliant materials. We can help with that!
