TENCEL™ for Footwear – the complete sustainable shoe solution from Lenzing, took part in the Winter edition of the LINEAPPLE trade show in Milan, Italy on 25-27, September, 2018.
Utilizing the gathering of industry at the exhibition, and with sustainability at the forefront of consumer behavior and buying habits, the showcase was an opportunity to introduce the concept of TENCEL™ for Footwear to buyers, and introduce them to how the fiber works as a completely sustainable shoe solution.
Uniquely, the fiber can be used for the entire shoe, whether as textile fiber in the upper fabric, lining, insoles and laces/zipper/sewing thread, as nonwoven fiber in insoles or padding, or as TENCEL™ Lyocell powder in outsoles. The more shoe components are made of TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers, the closer the vision of the biodegradable shoe. With more brands seeking to include sustainable and environmentally friendly materials into their products – and brands such as Allbirds quick to include the fiber in their shoe line, it is a positive step in the right direction for innovative and sustainable footwear.
