Welspun Launches Collection in Collaboration With Dupont

Welspun India in collaboration with DuPont Biomaterials has launched a new home textile collection, including bath towels and bed sheets, made with bio-based materials to meet a growing demand for sustainable home textile products.

The collaboration brings together cotton and DuPont Sorona fibres to create home textile fabrics.

The fabrics used in the new range provide comfort, moisture management and soft hand feel.

DuPont’s Sorona brand made from 37% renewable plant-based ingredients offer a high-performing, responsibly sourced material option.

Fibres made with Sorona polymer are currently used in various apparel applications, including athleisure and athletic wear, insulation, swimwear, outerwear, suiting, faux fur and more.

Sorona polymer offers technical and performance benefits, including softness, stretch and recovery, and inherent stain 2 resistance without the need for topical treatments.

It is a USDA Certified Bio based Product and is certified as an Oeko-Tex Standard 100 product.

Welspun India challenged us to deliver a fibre innovation that will enable them to offer a perceptible value addition to their end customers and yet provide a sustainable solution. We were able to deliver to the Welspun team the Soronafibre in a format that allows its incorporation into a range of applications, including towels and bedsheets” said Dr. Gowri Nagarajan, regional sales and marketing manager, DuPont Biomaterials.
