This innovative cloth was invented by the textile researcher, Mr. Toru Itoi, founder of the company. It derives from the same fiber as the WASHI. WASHI aspect is that of a particularly strong kind of paper; in Japan it is not only used as papers to write on but also for their typical sliding doors, which naturally provide rooms with warmth in winter and coolness in summer.
It can be kept for more than 1000 years in contact with the air, but it is also biodegradable and it can dissolve, underground, in 4-5 weeks thanks to the action of the microorganism that live inside its porous structure.
Its porous structure, full of microorganisms, absorbs humidity and gives the cloth a very low thermal conductivity rate. For this reason, it is suitable for the production of shoes lining and insoles.
Its double layered construction makes its abrasion resistance 6-8 times stronger than cotton canvas and 2-3 times than polyester.
The porous structure of the textile has an antibacterial purifying function which enables to avoid the bad smell.
It absorbs the humidity and dry fast, so it remains always comfortable. Even when wet, you do not feel cold and it remains comfortably dry even with humidity.
Does not create heat caused by abrasion and does not transmit heat. This helps to avoid the over-heating inside the shoes and feet blisters.
ITOITEX cloth should be used with your barefoot, because it is a completely natural material and it gives the same benefits as walking barefoot on the soil. The contact of washi cloth with the foot plant helps to keep our body in good health and helps to take relief from fatigue.
