Smart Material, Palm Leather

The Resort Slipper

Today I went to the Transnatural festival at NEMO Amsterdam, an art, design and industry exhibition about balancing nature & technology.

There was one thing that really caught my attention, ‘The Resort Slipper’ from Dutch designer Tjeerd Veenhoven. He discovered that when the leaf of a palm is combined with a bio-organic solution is has the same characteristics as leather or rubber. The Resort Slipper is produced from this material, it’s an economic, fully bio-gradable sandal who can replace the disposable flip-flop.

A very sustainable way of producing and also a very cool and original product, the palm leafs also feel very nice and comfortable and it’s very flexible to0.
