Cintas Corporation, US corporate apparel business in collaboration with Austin Reed has created a new suit collection using DuPontâ€™s Sorona a sustainable textile fibre, together with wool and recycled polyester. Sorona fiber can be blended with any other fiber, including cotton, linen, wool, nylon and polyester. In cotton and linen blends, Sorona provides softness and comfort stretch with less wrinkles.
