The fall collection from CHASE54 continues use of the bio-tech fabric Sorona by DuPont with 25 garments in-house featuring the Sorona biotechnology.
The company’s blend of Sorona and Spandex features more than 80% of the Sorona polymer. This combination presents a color brilliance and ultra-chic performance quality that “you have to feel to believe,” says Doug Risher, National Sales Director for CHASE54. “The level of Sorona we bring into our garments sets us apart. We can do this because we are a vertical apparel manufacturer controlling all the production steps, avoiding the middleman,”
Risher adds.Sorona is made from corn and has natural stain resistant properties plus an extremely soft hand creating fabrics that dry quickly while having a stretch recovery. Sorona 3GT provides all the advantages of polyesters such as stability, low moisture absorption, easy care, good weather resistance, and recyclability. The Sorona polymer contains 37% recycled material.
“It’s hard to imagine these trendsetting designs beginning in a vast field of corn,” says Lulu Faddis, Creative Director and Chief Designer for CHASE54. “With the sport of golf living in a prestigious landscape, it’s important for CHASE54 to pay tribute to the environment in everything we do. We believe in sustainability for the earth, the industry and all fashion innovation to support that. When we heard that beyond the functional qualities of Sorona, the recycling is made easier than PET and Nylon, it was “game on” for CHASE54 and Sorona, Faddis adds.
