Performance and Sustainability Benefits in One Fabric

"Sorona® is a natural choice for our EcoLux Collection,” said Bonnie Siefers, Jonäno founder and designer. “Made in part from renewably sourced ingredients, along with the performance advantages as recognized by the FTC, Sorona® is a superior choice for loungewear and lingerie."

MaÏsse™ fabric fibers also offer sustainable benefits. The manufacturing of DuPont™ Sorona® renewably sourced polymer uses 30 percent less energy and reduces greenhouse gas emissions by 63 percent, compared to an equal amount of nylon 6 made from petroleum. The bamboo fiber source comes from a fast-growing crop that does not require pesticides during cultivation. Viscose made from bamboo fiber also offers superior breathability and a softness that has been compared to cashmere or silk.

With a company motto "From Seed to Sewn," Jonäno blends style and sustainability into lingerie and other apparel. With its sustainability and performance benefits, DuPont™ Sorona® blends perfectly with Jonäno apparel.

Sorona® contains 37% annually renewable plant based ingredients by weight (28% biobased carbon)
