DuPont Industrial Biosciences hosted the DuPont Textile Collaboratory along with their selected pavilion mill partners at the just concluded Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics and displayed how its Sorona fibre allows for the latest fabric innovations. Partners included leading fibre, fabric and insulation providers from across the Asia Pacific region.

These mill partners, leaders in their fields, demonstrated their ability to provide innovative solutions with the Sorona renewably sourced fibre, and provide value though out the textile value chain.

According to DuPont, Sorona is a high-performance fibre made in part from annually renewable plant based ingredients.

Key innovations of the Sorona fibre on show included comfort stretch knitwear and woven collections, that were spandex-free, yet provide exceptional stretch and recovery even after repeated stretches and washes.

Insulation materials made with the fibre were also shown as an alternative to down and feather filling, which offer designers and brands with a fill and down like insulation, suited for lightweight and breathable garments. (AR)
