For example, we with our Chinese partners have developed artificial leather with a natural base - natural collagen. Collagen fibers are applied by flocking - under the influence of an electrostatic field and air pressure, on the surface of the base material. It is very convenient to work with this leather - there are no large cuts like from leathers, and there is no marriage, it is convenient to tailor it, respectively, for a shoe manufacturer - this is a big savings, and for the end customer, an affordable price for buying shoes. We also developed a raincoat fabric with a metallic effect, this is a new level in the production of dutiks. Shoes at cost remained the same, but their appearance exceeded all expectations. From China we import materials with microfiber, which has a high adsorbing ability, absorbs moisture well and is resistant to abrasion. Our microfiber is a microfibre made of nylon and polyurethane, a non-woven material that is used for upper shoes and lining. Now we are developing oil and petrol resistant materials for the top of safety shoes.
