“Especially for shoes, moisture management and breathability are very important criteria, as they contribute to a good microclimate in the shoe,” Birgit Schnetzlinger, Lenzing business manager for footwear, said. “The more components are made with Tencel Lyocell fibers, the better the performance, and also the better for our environment.”
Santoni and Lenzing came up with a new way to make denim.
The companies expanded their partnership into footwear with this creative comfort shoe.
Santoni and Lenzing work together to bring comfort, performance, and sustainability into various apparel and industrial applications.
The sneaker is made from Tencel fibers with the den/IM technology.
“This new den/IM knit capsule project captures the most important features of our technology: versatility, sustainability, and technical performance,” Patrick Silva, marketing manager at Santoni, said.
The companies collaborated using 3-D knitting technology and Lenzing’s Tencel fiber to create a “superperforming” backpack.
