(Nanowerk News) Ok, it's only Thursday, but here is this week's Slow News Friday story. Here is the original press release text; no comments necessary...
2006 Winner of The Product Innovation Award, Ricardo Beverly Hills,
Introduces the Capistrano Light Luggage Collection Featuring Nano-Tex®
Ricardo Beverly Hills
introduces a first in the luggage industry: the use of nanotechnology
integrated into a luggage line. The Capistrano Light Luggage Line features
lightweight Nano-Tex® treated fabric, which employs nanotechnology to
provide superior protection against stains and outdoor elements. The
result: an impressive luggage line that stays cleaner and maintains the
look of new luggage, even after several uses.
Robert Dodson, President of Ricardo Beverly Hills commented, "Our
company has a long history of creating innovative products that are
designed to advance the luggage industry as a whole and deliver solutions
to consumers. Our management and research team set out to solve an on-going
dilemma in the luggage industry: how to keep luggage looking newer and
cleaner for longer periods of time. After a great deal of research and
testing, we identified the usage of nanotechnology as the key to creating
lightweight fabric that provides superior protection against stains and
other elements. We selected Nano-Tex fabric and the end result is beautiful
luggage that will withstand the test of time."
