NATURAL
ECO-FACTS

 

 

The HARTJES natural line with its convincing eco facts is dedicated to all who stand up

for a self-determined and value-oriented life.

 

1.UPPER

 

The ecologically tanned Nubuk leather* is good for both people and nature. The metal-free and ecological tanning is significantly more work but its gentle processing offers huge advantages:

- 100% chromium-free

- healthier working conditions

- better wearing comfort (suitable for people with allergies)

- breathable

 

 

2.INNER LINING

DRY CLIM is a special microfiber fabric which regulates body moisture by absorbing sweat and routing it to the outside.
DRY CLIM promises highest wearing comfort. The fast drying material keeps your feet pleasantly fresh and provides for an anti-bacterial foot climate.

 

 

3.SHOELACES

 

The shoelaces with the cellulose fiber TENCEL™ (matching the upper material in color) are soft but robust – a good feeling with a touch of naturalness.

Tencel™ is vegan and an absolutely sustainable natural product.

 

 

 

 

 

4.SOLE

 

The outer soles of these shoes are extremely light, comfortable, and sustainable – thanks to the “XL Extralight® sustainable+“ material.

The 50 + 1% of the sustainable XL EXTRALIGHT® material come from recycled side products of the manufacturing process.

 

5.REMOVABLE CORK FOOTBED

 

The incredibly light centerpiece of the shoes is the removable footbed made of light cork by our daughter company MUCOS.

The special cell structure provides for a pleasant wearing comfort and stable support.

It is sustainable and ecological thanks to the recyclable cork.

 

6.SOLE MODEL FLEX

A naturally degradable and eco-friendly sole for our HARTJES model FLEX!

This sole stands for a company with a ‘green soul’ and an innovative spirit.

Interesting ECO fact: The sole consists of natural materials which would decompose in a natural way after a short time.
