DuPont and Lenzing join forces to launch new sustainable fabric



All the value chain of fashion takes new steps towards sustainability. Fiber companies DuPont Biomaterials and Lenzing have joined forces to launch a new sustainable fabric collection made of fibers derived from natural materials.


More specifically, they’ll use DuPont Sorona fibers and Tencel  Lyocell and Tencel Modal fibers from Lenzing. The objective is to create resilient, stretchy garments, but soft to the touch. The collection will have applications for intimates, activewear and ready-to-wear.


“The future of fibres belongs to the companies that are putting performance and sustainability at the forefront of everything they do,” said Renee Henze, global marketing director, DuPont Biomaterials.


DuPont has invented revolutionary fibers such as nylon, Lycra and rayon. Its Sorona brand is made from 37% renewable plant-based ingredients. Lenzing has also bet on sustainability in recent years: in 2018, the company announced a 100-million euros investment to implant sustainable technologies in its factories.

Everything I've ever bought made with their material has shrunk - a lot - first wash. It's not environmentally friendly because cannot be worn more than once.
