With shoes made of TENCELTM fibers, a complete sustainable shoe solution becomes reality. TENCELTM fibers are made from renewable resources. They are of botanic origin, since they are extracted from the raw material wood. Fiber production itself is extremely eco-friendly, due to the closed loop system. TENCELTM fibers are both biodegradable and compostable.
The fiber can be used for every part in the shoe: whether as textile fibers in upper fabrics, linings, insoles, laces, zippers, sewing thread, as nonwoven fibers in insoles or as powder in paddings or outer soles.
TENCELTM fibers transform the inherent properties from nature to performance. Moisture management and thermal regulation are only two of the important factors which are indispensable for all kinds of shoes: athletic, safety, outdoor, casual and formal.
