Sorona has unveiled its new website including refreshed iconography and photography in celebration of its Common Thread Fabric Certification program and apparel sub-brands—Agile, Aura, Luxe, Profile, Revive.

Inspired by the plant-based element of Sorona polymer, the new sub-brand iconography borrows from nature utilizing hyper-detailed images of various flora that emulate the performance capabilities of Sorona in fabrics. Visitors to the website may also notice fashion forward, apparel-in-action shots, too, captured by award-winning photographer Stan Musilek.

The refreshed Sorona website is the result of a collaboration between Addis, an integrated creative partner for progressive brands such as MightyLeaf and Kashi; OneMagnify performance marketing company specializing in strategic digital, brand, and customer experience communications; and TYPOConsult, a Copenhagen-based, full-service web consultancy company.

“We are so excited to launch our new website, which signals the natural evolution of our brand messaging and vision. We believe in transparency and traceability throughout the value chain and celebrating the sub-brands through this innovative creative execution felt like an exciting next step,” said Alexa Raab, Global Brand and Communications Leader – Sorona.
