DuPont Industrial Biosciences and Natural Insulation Products (NIPI) are partnering to create new type of insulation. The two will explore new, innovative materials combining DuPont Soronafibres, a high-performance fibre made from plant-based ingredients, and Thindown, the only down fabric, to enhance warmth, comfort and design flexibility of insulation. This partnership brings together two forward-thinking leaders in the materials space to explore new, innovative materials that will combine DuPont Soronafibres and Thindown to enhance the warmth, comfort and design flexibility of insulation. Thindown is the world’s first and only down fabric, which offers the coveted benefits of a versatile material. As the company looks to elevate its performance attributes and sustainable ingredients, it has partnered with DuPont Industrial Biosciences’ using its Soronafibre – a high-performance fibre made from renewable plant-based ingredients. The two brands are exploring new developments to seamlessly combine the softness, drape and stretch recovery of Soronafibres and down, utilising the proprietary process from Thindown to create a new category of a blended down insulated fabric. 

“We are constantly exploring new opportunities to develop and market innovative solutions across industries, and this unique collaboration underscores that commitment to delivering on both high performance and sustainability in apparel,” said Renee Henze, global marketing director, DuPont Industrial Biosciences. “The breakthrough technology of Thindown – coupled with the textile innovation of Soronafibres – can further revolutionise down applications and create a new category of insulation.” The blend of Soronafibres and Thindown can eliminate several drawbacks associated with the use of traditional down filling. The combination can reduce cold spots with a single sheet of fabric versus quilted sections, delivering greater warmth and breathability, while simultaneously adding drape and stretch for greater movement. Additionally, with the use of bio-based Soronafibres, the collaboration yields a more sustainable insulated material option versus traditional down, which comes from animal plumage, or nylon, which requires 40 per cent more energy to produce. “We are pleased to partner with DuPont, the creator of some of the world’s most outstanding fibres to bring together ‘the best of Science and the best of Nature’ to create the next evolution of down fabrics,” said Ronie Reuben, the inventor of Thindown.
