For parts of the collection we have used a newly developed suede based on the fibers of the sugar cane plant. The sugar cane is pressed out for sugar production. What remains is a fibrous wood that has no other use and is left as biological waste on the plantations. In the manufacturing process, the biological content can be up to 69%.
Artificial suede from sugar cane waste is an innovative and sustainable material made from the waste of sugar production. It is produced through a process called "upcycling", in which waste products are transformed into new materials.
This suede has several advantages over traditional materials for shoes. It is soft and comfortable, which makes it a great material for sneakers. It is also durable and can last a long time, making it a great choice for everyday use.
Another advantage of artificial suede made from sugar cane waste is that it is biodegradable and has a reduced carbon footprint compared to traditional materials. This makes it a great choice for people looking for eco-friendly options.
Using artificial suede made from sugar cane waste in sneakers is a step towards a more sustainable fashion industry and a great way to reduce waste products while providing a comfortable material for footwear.
Overall, artificial suede made from sugarcane waste offers a more sustainable and ecological alternative to traditional leather.
