Sorona®

We believe science should learn from nature—that a product is timeless when it’s renewable, and that a single fiber can make a world of difference. We know that we never have to sacrifice performance to be sustainable, or the other way around. To us, finding ways to leave a smaller footprint just comes naturally, so we do it every step of the way.
