Fibertex nonwovens for footwear

Our sustainable footwear solutions encompass high-performance needlepunch and spunlace products in polyester, polypropylene, rayon, nylon and micro-fibres.

Nonwoven functional fabrics are used as a structure and internal finishing in the manufacture of shoes for men, women and children, as well as for safety and high-performance sports shoes. Our versatile materials are soft to the touch, ensuring a comfortable feel, yet are hard-wearing for colour-fastness and resistance to wear, tear and pilling.


Advantages of using Fibertex substrates

  • Our durable materials offer superior fibre distribution: weight regularity and homogeneous surface
  • Thickness regularity: the amount of material (PVC / PU) deposited in the nonwoven is always uniform
  • Optimum tensile / tear ratio: greater control of physical properties, low oscillation of minimum ratios
  • Improved finish of synthetic laminates and cutting
  • Our materials shape to the contour of the footwear with no wrinkles or irregularities.

Products and technology

Concern for the environment is critical at Fibertex, which is why no animal products, resins, additives or restricted chemicals are used in our products. Our spunlace and needlepunch technologies meet all industry requirements in the footwear sector.

Advanced engineering ensures our products resist high temperatures - whether in the process of synthetic laminates, combining the nonwoven with fabrics or foams or in shoe manufacturing processes.

We offer durable fabrics for many different applications, with the appropriate thickness, weight and mechanical properties, like high-strength, elongation, flexibility and absorption. Added to mechanical properties are a perfect finish and soft touch.
We can improve the yield on shoe production processes by enabling the cutting of many layers at once and making the sewing process easier.
