GREENSBORO, North Carolina , January 11, 2023 (press release) –

Burlington Performance Apparel, a division of Burlington Industries LLC, will showcase Synatural™ at the Outdoor Retailer Snow Show in Salt Lake City, Utah, Jan. 10–12. A greener stretch option, Synatural is a unique fabric collection with added texture and color.

“We’re excited to introduce a new collection directly aligned with Burlington’s 2025 sustainability goals and the sustainability objectives of our customers,” said Andrew Hicks, Business Manager for Performance Apparel. “At Burlington, we’re committed to creating new, sustainable innovations to make the world a better place.”

Burlington’s Synatural collection of fabrics features planet-positive yarn technology with natural fiber-like aesthetics, engineered for adaptable fabric solutions with lasting comfort and multifunctional performance. Burlington’s stretch yarn technology includes custom weaves, recycled nylon, and more using Sorona®, a partially bio-based polymer that delivers increased stretch performance. The fabrics in this collection include a minimum of 30% recycled content and 23% bio-based products.

“We are excited to partner with fabric producers like Burlington who are finding innovative ways to make sustainable garments available to their customers. Their use of CovationBio™ Sorona allows them to offer a more eco-conscious product without compromising performance. Sorona delivers exceptional stretch and recovery and enables a garment to keep its original shape longer and is wrinkle resistant. And because it’s partially plant-based, it reduces its impact on the environment,” said Binita Bhuta, Vice President, Marketing & Sustainability for CovationBio.

As working from home becomes a trend that’s here to stay, consumers continue to favor active apparel that can transition from the office to the outdoors. The fabrics in Burlington’s Synatural collection deliver a technical, soft, knit-like aesthetic for optimal comfort.

No fabric is complete without a finishing touch. Burlington Labs technologies offer matrix-friendly and customizable performance finishes that enhance the product throughout its life cycle.

Visit Burlington (Booth #7014) at the Outdoor Retailer Snow Show in Salt Lake City, Utah, Jan. 10-12 to see the new Synatural sustainable collection. For more information about Burlington's sustainable offerings, visit burlingtonfabrics.com.
