Introducing new, refined and more sustainable styles for women this season, Camper is delighted to present its first ever collaboration with TENCEL™ branded lyocell fibers.
Refreshing the unique styles of Right and Upright, the boot and bootie from the AW2020 collection have been designed with an innovative knitted construction technique that contains TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers from botanic origin, derived from sustainably grown wood sources.
Harvested from certified and controlled sources that are FSC® or PEFC™ certified, TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers are developed using a closed loop production process, which is highly resource efficient and has a low ecological impact. The process recycles water and uses 95% less in comparison to conventional cotton. For this collection, the fiber has been blended to create an innovative 3D webbed structure, which creates a sock-style boot with support, comfort and conscious attitude.
“We are thrilled to collaborate with Camper, the first footwear brand to feature a knitted upper women’s boot using TENCEL™ branded lyocell fibers. The sustainable fibers are not only a great choice for the environment; the soft and breathable material also offers great comfort and feels good. Our partnership with Camper is a perfect example of our commitment for driving sustainability in the footwear industry,” shared Florian Heubrandner, Vice President of Global Business Management Textiles at Lenzing.
Camper’s partnership with Lenzing is part of its long-term commitment to source materials with a lower ecological impact, whilst retaining the performance, durability and unique spirit that makes a Camper shoe. A little better, never perfect.
Cecilia Llorens, Product Design Director for Camper explains: “Long-term partnerships such as those with Lenzing are vital to reducing the environmental impact of the footwear industry. Our designers are focused towards change and developing new innovations in design, but this must be complemented by materials such as TENCEL™. We plan to eliminate the use of virgin plastic in our uppers by 2022, and natural materials that achieve both performance sustainability are essential to being able to achieve this.
The collection will be available from September at Camper stores, selected partners and online at camper.com.
