DuPont Industrial Biosciences partners with Wools of New Zealand (WoNZ) which will bring together patented technology from WoNZ with DuPont’s leadership in bio-sustainable, high-performance materials to create a platform of yarns for home textiles that will offer enduring performance characteristics with a more sustainable, eco-friendly profile.

DuPont Sorona Global Segment leader John Sagrati said that Wools of New Zealand is truly a leader in responsible wool supply. This level of care, along with their devotion to innovation and quality control is exactly what they at DuPont seek in partners. They occupy a premium position in their market and have a proven track record of performance and sustainability with the unique capability to deliver consistent, tailored fibres.

WoNZ Chief Executive RosstanMazey said that they are genuinely excited to partner with DuPont Industrial Biosciences, a business that has been able to bring biomaterials to market on a commercial-scale. Like them, DuPont is committed to delivering added value innovation without compromising the planet or its inhabitants.

The combined resources and know-how in order to create this exciting, brand-new yarn is a perfect fit with their mission to change the game through innovation and to connect the people who grow our fibre with the end consumer. DuPont’s global leadership in bio-sustainable, high-performance materials inspired this collaboration of expertise and products, scheduled for release in 2018.
