DuPont Sorona, INVISTA’s CORDURA brand, and DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products are previewing new fabric developments with a range of even more innovative and sustainable textile solutions for workwear and outdoor wear. This provides fashion, shoe and equipment designers with an even wider choice of durable fabrics with high-performance materials.
INVISTA’s CORDURA and DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products brands worked together to create next-generation textile-efficient textile solutions throughout the year. These fabrics combine consistent abrasion resistance and bio-based Susterra propandiol coatings and membranes, inspiring consumers to adopt the CORDURA brand ethos “Sustainability Begins With Products That Last”.
“CORDURA’s 50th anniversary celebration in 2017 is the perfect opportunity to look back on five decades of groundbreaking, durable fabric technology and to work with some outstanding partners,” said Cindy McNaull, Brand and Global Marketing Director CORDURA. “Working with the top teams of DuPont Industrial Biosciences and DuPont Tate & Lyle to create tough, environmentally-efficient future solutions for our latest CORDURA + Susterra + Sorona softshell technology was a unique opportunity to bring together the rich heritage that unites us all, to bundle. This collaboration is certainly one of the highlights of our 50×50 Heritage Meets Innovation Jubilee Journey. “
