Sorona® for Casual Wear

Sorona® Enhances Other Fibers in Today’s Casual Wear

DuPont™ Sorona® plays nicely with others, conjuring new synergies when blended with the old standards of casual wear: cotton, linen, and wool.

Casual Wear That’s a Pleasure to Wear

Sorona® makes the workhorse textiles work even harder, be they linen, wool, or cotton. Wool, for example, derives enhanced softness, durability, and a pleasing drape when blended with Sorona®.

Moves in Mysterious Ways

Sorona® is breathable and soft, human-friendly like cotton and linen.  But Sorona® also lends its trademark stretch and recover magic to casual wear. Sorona® moves with the body. It stretches effortlessly, and then gracefully resumes its original shape with nary a wrinkle. For casual wear that’s a pleasure to wear, the answer is Sorona® polymer.

Eco-Friendly

DuPont™ Sorona® contains 37% renewably-sourced (plant-based) material by weight. Sorona® means apparel brands can offer consumers high performance ready-to-wear that consumes less non-renewable energy to produce when compared to alternative materials like nylon. Sorona® production also results in reduced greenhouse gas emissions when compared with an equal amount of nylon.
