Eastman, a global specialty Materials Company, and DuPont Biomaterials introduce a range of sustainable fabrics made with bio-based materials.
This development is to encounter the growing demand for sustainable fashion options for everyday casualwear.
The collection is made by integrating the Eastman Naia cellulosic fibre and DuPont Sorona fibres and delivers exceptional stretch and recovery, luxurious drape and a smooth, soft hand feel.
Eastman Naia filament yarn makes the fabric luxurious, comfortable and easy-to-care-for fabrics. The staple fibre perfectly blends with eco-conscious fibres for making fabrics supremely soft, quick-drying and shows less pilling.
The Naia Fibres are manufactured through optimised, low-impact manufacturing in a closed-loop process where solvents are recycled back into the system, while the DuPont Sorona polymer is a bio-based, high performance polymer that minimises the impact on the environment without sacrificing quality and performance.
The fibre delivers incredible softness, stretch and recovery, and inherent stain resistance without the need for topical treatments.
“We are very excited to be working with the Sorona team to launch a collection of wonderful fabrics that are a great choice for womenswear fashion. More and more, designers are looking for sustainable fabric choices. And this sustainable fabric collection with bio-based, renewable materials showcases that fashion can come without any compromise on beauty, quality or comfort,” Ruth Farrell, Global Marketing Director of textiles for Eastman.
