Sorona® is 37% plant based, using 30% less energy and emitting 50% less GHG (greenhouse gas) as compared to the production of nylon from non-renewable resources. In this day and age, that’s a great look.
- Long-lasting stretch
- Easy Care
- Shape recovery
How It's Made
The process begins by harvesting crops and then extracting sugar or glucose from them. Microorganisms are added to the glucose to begin a fermentation process (similar to the process of alcohol). Fermentation replaces chemical synthesis, producing PDO (1,3-Propanediol) in a natural way. TPA (terephthalic acid) is added to the Bio-PDO, creating a molecular bond. The result is Sorona®: a revolutionary, high-performance polymer whose positive impact is felt by yarn spinners, manufacturers, designers, and consumers across the globe.
