The city of Ivanovo was assigned the honorary title of the Russian Federation City of Labour Valour for the significant contribution made by its citizens to the Victory in the Great Patriotic War of 1941–1945, which ensured uninterrupted output of military and non-military goods by industrial enterprises, and for mass labour heroism and selfless commitment shown by the city dwellers.
During the Great Patriotic War, Ivanovo became the main national textile centre. During the war years, Ivanovo textile industry workers manufactured around 90% of the total output of fabric in the country. The Ivanovo factories produced cotton wool, bandage cloth, and fabric for military uniforms. Virtually every service shirt for soldiers was sewn from Ivanovo fabrics. Clothes makers produced large quantities of military uniforms and underwear, and also camouflage robes. Textile workers ensured the take-off of thousands of airplanes by producing canvas cloth used to cover their wings, provided entire armies with raincoats and clothing, whereas Ivanovo clothes makers manufactured a sufficient number of parachutes for airborne troops. Workers of the Ivanovo Melanzh Factory produced about 100 million meters of fabric for the front, which was enough to dress over 12 million soldiers of the Red Army.
Ivanovo mechanical engineering plants switched to the output of shell bodies, air bombs, mines, and grenades. Chemical workers began to produce explosives. The Ivanovo wood processing plant manufactured equipment for ski military units. A new auto repair plant was commissioned in Ivanovo. Thousands of trucks for the army and the national economy were repaired in the shops of that plant.
Enterprises of the city of Ivanovo received quite a number of awards for their outstanding contribution to the Victory.
