Selection Green Product Award 2019

BARKTEX®_Tururi+Latex has been nominated for a 2019 Green Product Award. The natural fiber composite from tururi wild growing palm fibre and natural virgin latex is the result of a co-development of BARK CLOTH_europe with the Brazilian rubber tapper's co-operative Coomflona. As an exemplary application for the award ceremony on the International Crafts Tradefair in Munich in March 2019, Mr. Markus Werner of the experimental shoe label has developed a sandal prototype: the upper has been made with BARKTEX®_Tururi+Latex, the insole upper has been made with raw Tururi fiber without latex coating.
