Introducing Wasabi Dyneema/nylon

TOM BIHN Travel Tray in Wasabi

The waiting and speculation are now over: Wasabi is the new color of our Dyneema/nylon fabric, joining other colors Steel, Ultraviolet, and Iberian. Wasabi is a new color of Dyneema/nylon but not a new color to TOM BIHN. Wasabi has become classic TOM BIHN: it's been one of our custom-dyed 500d Cordura colors for almost a decade now. We think it makes a great lining color because it's bright and pairs well with so many exterior colors: Black, Steel, Navy, and various shades of purple and green.

Our Dyneema/nylon fabric is woven for us and dyed to our specifications in Japan. It's one of Tom's favorite fabrics, originally chosen because of its light weight yet superior tear strength. Turns out it has quite good abrasion resistance as well -- it even outperforms many heavier fabrics that are used on the exterior of lesser quality bags.

The Dyneema portion of our fabric is the white ripstop grid, with the balance of the fabric (the part with the color -- in this case, Wasabi) 200 denier nylon. The naturally white Dyneema does not readily accept dye, so when our fabric goes through the dying process, the Dyneema yarns come out squeaky clean and remain free of color. The Dyneema grid will keep any possible tears or holes from spreading. We think it looks pretty cool, too.
