Introducing Aubergine 1050d ballistic nylon

The TOM BIHN Aeronaut in Aubergine
The Aeronaut in Aubergine.

Made for us in the U.S. and dyed to our specifications, our 1050 denier, high tenacity ballistic nylon is extraordinarily abrasion-resistant (it has twice the abrasion resistance of 1680 denier fabric). It's used as the main exterior fabric of our travel bags, laptop bags, messenger bags, and briefcases.

All of our 1050d ballistic nylon fabric is custom-dyed to our specifications. Navy, Cardinal, Forest, Steel, and even Black are colors chosen by us and perfected by the mills we work with. Now we've added a sixth color: Aubergine. Described by Amy Singer as a deep raspberry purple, Aubergine is almost iridescent. We think we've managed to find a shade of purple that goes well with just about every color. It pairs especially well with our Steel, Wasabi, and Ultraviolet Dyneema/nylon (the fabric most often used to line bags made with an exterior of Aubergine 1050d ballistic nylon).
