Flexible Slate breaking new barriers in the Footwear Industry
At the beginning of the ’70s two things happened that seemed almost impossible to connect. Sport footwear market was developing with an unprecedented advertising campaign and slate was introduced in Germany, then conquering Europe as material for interior and exterior decoration projects. Later in the ‘80s flexible slate was invented and sport footwear had a solid market share, appealing to people more or less connected to the world of sports. Now in 2017, flexible slate becomes associated with sport footwear.
A joint-venture between 2 German companies, ROXXLYN and Nat-2, created a new collection of sport shoes, manufactured with flexible slate. ROXXLYN is famous for using natural stone in their line of exclusive accessories, while Nat-2 is a pioneer manufacturer in the sport footwear industry. This luxury footwear is handmade in a small family-owned business. Besides slate, product also contains: fine smooth leather, reflective glass and natural rubber sole.
On natural stone market for interior decorations, flexible slate is a thin sheet of slate, only 1.2 – 2 cm and very flexible, that can be installed on smooth and curved surfaces. After sealing, it becomes waterproof, thus ideal even for decoration projects in wet spaces.
Using an adhesive, it is ideal for vertical cladding, on interior and exterior walls. At the same time, flexible slate is also a very affordable solution for a spectacular decoration of your furniture pieces. You can see here the entire range of SKIN Flexible Slate Veneer from PIATRAONLINE. Each type of flexible slate should also have a translucent version (see picture below).
