DuPont has launched five new branded collections under its Sorona line, along with a fabric certification programme designed to enhance traceability and transparency and bring “simplicity of choice” to designers and apparel brands.

The fibres are based on a polymer that uses 37% annually renewable plant-based ingredients. New fabric collections offered by mills are tested and certified through the DuPont Sorona Fabric Common Thread Certification Program to assure the fabrics have the unique molecular footprint of partially plant-based Sorona polymer as well as meet key fabric performance attributes.

“Fibre producers are able to create many unique constructions from Sorona polymer enabling a wide variety of textiles exhibiting diverse performance properties from wrinkle-resistant outerwear fabrics to lightweight breathable insulation products, permanent stretch and recovery, and newly launched Sorona faux fur,” explains DuPont Biomaterials global marketing director Renee Henze. “We are committed to ensuring that mills, designers and brands have clarity on our offering and that they can trust the source of the materials when they’re choosing fabrics using Sorona.”

New fabrics certified through the programme offer the following performance characteristics: long-lasting stretch (Sorona Agile), shape recovery (Sorona Revive), easy care (Sorona Profile), all-day softness (Sorona Luxe), and lightweight breathable warmth (Sorona Aura).
