Dupont worked with JayaShree Textiles to launch a fabric collection made with Dupont Biomaterials Sorona, a partially bio-based polymer, that it said meets the needs of a growing demand for sustainable fashion options.
The collaboration blends linen and Sorona fibers to create garments with exceptional stretch and recovery, luxurious drape and a smooth, soft hand. Fibers made with Sorona polymer are currently used in various apparel applications, including athleisure and athletic wear, insulation, swimwear, outerwear, suiting and faux fur.
Sorona offers technical and performance benefits, including softness, stretch and recovery, and inherent stain resistance without the need for topical treatments. Sorona is a USDA Certified Biobased Product and is certified as a Oeko-Tex Standard 100 product.
JayaShree Textiles has been makes fine linen using advanced technology and high-quality flax sourced from Belgium and France. JayaShree Textiles is part of the Common Thread Fabric Certification program.
“JayaShree Textiles is very excited to collaborate with the Sorona team to launch the collection of linen/Sorona Agile fabric,” Satyaki Ghosh, CEO, JayaShree Textiles, said. “This fabric is a great choice for brands and retailers looking at sustainable ways to explore comfort stretch in linen fabrics. It is an excellent choice for both top wear and bottom wear apparel.”
Renee Henze, global marketing and commercial development director at DuPont Biomaterials, said the collaboration with JayaShree Textiles “is a testimony to the type of effort that will allow more apparel brands the opportunity to address tomorrow’s challenges through renewably sourced fiber materials without compromising performance and value.”
“Sustainable fashion is the future and this new collection is a great example of how you can create stunning designs while caring for our planet,” Henze said.
