By opening doors to new processes and innovations that were not possible before, technology is completely changing the fibre industry.

Technology, today, enables us to source ingredients for bio-based materials, integrate them with other fibres and enhance their attributes and create products superior in quality and yet eco-efficient for the environment, said Renee Henze, global marketing head, DuPont Biomaterials and Sorona, in an exclusive interview with Fibre2Fashion.

According to her, there is huge potential in the market for sustainable high performance fibres. Giving example of Sorona, she says it has applications across the apparel space, from its stretch recovery and softness attributes, to its durability and comfort. “For example, we have partnered with companies in the Indian textile market to incorporate Sorona into materials used for saris.”

Over the past few years, DuPont has partnered with major apparel global brands to include Sorona in their product lines. These customers include well-known global brands in the outdoor apparel, ready-to-wear, fashion, denim, yoga, intimate apparel and sports apparel segments. The company also works directly with yarn spinners and fabric mills to integrate the biopolymer into fabrics downstream.

However, a challenge lies “in developing fibres in a sustainable way that do not compromise on performance. We have to do so in a way that is accessible and economical enough to make an impact across the apparel industry.” (RKS)
