The Tentoes Made In Nature line is the result of research and development using 100% Made In Nature Materials.
The shoe is 100% biodegradable, resourced and produced locally to avoid any unnecessary CO2 emissions.
Materials are an important part of the Made In Nature line. A thorough investigation was made regarding the choice of the materials. The shoe is 100% biodegradable, completely resourced and produced locally to avoid any unnecessary CO2 emissions. The leather used easily disintegrates into the environment, since its degradation happens at least five times faster than in any other type of leather. It also has good water absorption and is a smooth and resistant material. Through the composting process, transforming organic matter into a stable material like an organic fertilizer, it can be reintegrated into the ecological cycle of the planet, thus making the Made In Nature line part of a circular economy. Organic cotton (or natural cotton) is another great Eco friendly fabric. It is grown without the use of pesticides, herbicides or other chemical fertilizers, and is simply better for your health and the environment. Organic agriculture (food and fiber) protects the health of people and the planet by reducing the overall exposure to toxic chemicals from synthetic pesticides that can end up in the ground, air, water and food supply, and that are associated with health consequences, from asthma to cancer. Because organic agriculture doesn't use toxic pesticides, choosing organic products is an easy way to help protect the environment and yourself. Natural cottons are grown using methods and materials that have a low impact on the environment. Organic production systems replenish and maintain soil fertility, reduce the use of toxic and persistent pesticides and fertilizers, and build biologically diverse agriculture, making natural cottons an Eco friendly fabric. Natural cottons are useful in textile production due to its natural wicking properties, absorption of dye color and its ability to stabilize other Eco fibers. Clothing made from organic cottons have the feel of linen without the weight. Since natural cottons are not chemically stripped of its natural wax, most weaves have a characteristic smoothness and weight which makes the fabric particularly flattering in its drape and in the mellow way it reflects and absorbs light. Many allergies may be caused by chemicals in cotton fibers we either wear, or sleep on. No-gel foam based on natural latex, coated on natural textile. It has breathable, cushioning and antibacterial properties for the best comfort. It meets the European Standards concerning the dangerous substances requirements requirements.It is suitable for heavy duty application because of its good stability, abrasion resistance, breathability and steam permeability. Natural rubber is made up of long isoprene polymer chains, loosely connected. The chains reattach themselves when pulled apart; this gives rubber its elasticity. As opposed to synthetic rubbers, which are made from petrochemicals, natural rubber is made from the latex sap of rubber trees. These trees grow in tropical rainforests. The sap is collected by cutting thin strips of bark from the tree and allowing the latex substance to be tapped. This harvesting does not weaken the tree, far from it, it actually helps it flourish. Compared to other rubbers, natural rubber is one of the most flexible types, and it's resistant to water and certain chemicals. It's also resistant to cutting, tearing, wear, fatigue and abrasion.
