Recycled products have developed after years and years of research, trials, and errors. Finding ways to produce a sustainable product, without sacrificing neither performance nor design is what most companies are trying to achieve. Sustainability needs to look good, feel good, and simply be good.
DuPont is a company that has been revolutionising sustainable materials. They are one of the leaders in developing plastic-coated fabrics and fibres like versatile nylon since 1910. In the humongous category of these fibres and fabrics, Sorona found itself a new spot. The process for this fibre begins like many others by harvesting crops, from which glucose is obtained. By adding microorganisms, a fermentation process begins that smartly replaces chemical processes. Bio-PDO (1,3-Propanediol), one of the major components, is in this mode composed naturally. By finally adding TPA (terephthalic acid) to the Bio-PDO, it creates a unique molecular bond that will bring about the beautiful material called Sorona.
“When you do good, you feel good” is what DuPont initially tries to convey to each prospective consumer of fast fashion. They believe that science should learn from nature, finding a way to leave smaller footprints around the globe. Sorona is both smooth and flexible, perfectly designed to comfort your skin while being environmentally friendly.
Spin it, weave it, or wear it. Sorona is as smart as every consumer who decides to switch to sustainable clothing. You can feel a difference due to its smoothness, softness, and quick-drying feature. With exceptional traits and durability of the products, benefitting the society as a whole, DuPont has contributed to a more sustainable but also traceable and transparent industry.
