Sorona® for Sustainable Sarees

Sorona® for Sustainable, Silk-Like Sarees

Natural materials like silk have been at the epitome of Indian women’s ethnic wear since ancient times. Sarees made with Sorona® offer women a more sustainable alternative to silk that is supremely wearable, easy to care for, and more gentle on the planet.

To bring affordable fabric options to the larger population, the Indian textile industry has continuously strived to adopt man-made fibers that have aesthetics closer to that of silk. Fabrics made with Sorona® have all the characteristics that are most desirable for sarees: they are inherently soft, lightweight, and have unique properties that result in silk-like chiffon lines.

Sorona® also allows for better color uptake - resulting in brighter colors and vibrant prints that have an exceptional color fastness, and fabrics that are easier to care for than their natural counterparts. And because Sorona® is made in part with plant-based ingredients, it helps reduce the reliance on fossil fuels, while reducing the need for extreme processing conditions.

With Sorona®, everyone benefits. Mills, designers and manufacturers can offer consumers more sustainable sarees in lightweight fabrics that are easy to care for, and gentler on the planet.
