Application of Nano Materials in the Shoe Industry

Nanotechnology can play a key role in the production of new materials, Application of Nano Materials in the Shoe Industry.

In recent years, customers have increasingly grown their attention to a variety of dimensions, including comfort, security, health of the goods and more. At the same time, customers are interested in aesthetic aspects of shoes.

Therefore, the INESCOP shoe technology institute in Spain, using innovative technologies such as Nano Technology, has been working on developing advanced material to make shoe.

The use of new and multifunctional materials opens the way to different production methods in the shoe sector and allows manufacturers to meet both market needs and increase their competitive ability.

Nanotechnology can play a key role in the production of new materials that have mechanical and technical, lightweight, durable and anti-bacterial properties with excellent performance, and can satisfy customers.

Application of Nano Materials in the Shoe Industry

Materials with Nanotechnology Structure

From this perspective, Nano-carbonates have become increasingly attractive materials, which, due to their unique structure and unique features, including high mechanical strength, provide manufacturers with innovative solutions.

In addition, Nano-carbonates can make tremendous changes, even if they are added to polymeric materials at a small scale.

In the same vein, researches have been conducted on the use of Nano carbon in shoes and in NANOFOOT project in Europe. The research focused on the shoe insoles.

For example, the goal was to use EVA microprocessors in the shoe insoles, which would eliminate the flow of electricity.

This causes the Static electricity flow to open its way out of the shoes. In addition, this method will make the shoes cool. Research in these areas has been successful so far.

Nano-carbon materials can also be used to produce polyurethane for these types of shoes.

Nanotechnology has made it possible to create shoes that antibacterial and antiphonal materials have been used in producing them. These materials prevent the growth of foot microorganisms that cause infection and bad smell.

To achieve this goal, research is being carried out on the use of metal nanoparticles, such as silver and gold, instead of organic biocides.

The antimicrobial of these materials that have been used for a long time are being used more than before. This has been achieved through the development of exploitative technology of Nano metric metal particles, and it has been proven that it can have great and long-lasting effects in confronting a wide range of bacteria.

The INESCOP Institute has used “green” synthesis methods for metallic nanoparticles. These experiments are carried out within the framework of the NANOMETAL project and are proposed as a substitute for current methods. With these methods, the quality and durability of the products are also higher.

Silica gel nanoparticles have a significant impact on the production of leather and shoes with antimicrobial properties as well as more quality and healthier glue for shoes.

In addition, nanoparticles have better capabilities when using 3D printing in the shoe and leather industry.

On the other hand, according to other researches and experiments, it is possible to create a combination of laser and plasma eco-friendly methods in the production of textiles and leather and to produce anti-fire, waterproof and anti-spot products. ..

Laser technology MLSE has helped to produce better materials without using hands and distorting the aesthetic aspects.

nano capsules,Nanotechnology


Controlled release of active substances such as antibacterial particles is an important issue in shoes. By using Nano-encapsulation technology this capability can be achieved.

The quality and durability of the goods can be improved by timely release of these particles. Nano capsules containing essential oils are embedded in the insoles and lining of the shoes and their material is purposefully and controlled transported directly to the foot when shoes are worn for long periods of time.

One of the problems in shoe technology and other industries is that in some products high temperature and mechanical pressures should be used to use Nano capsules.

Occasionally, high pressure and high temperatures allow Nano capsules to release the material sooner.

The INESCOP Institute has tried to solve this problem by making Nano capsules using organic materials such as metallic oxides, carbonates and silicates..

These organic materials act as a protective coating against heat and pressure, and prevent the early release of materials and particles. Using Nano-encapsulation technology in medical shoes and similar products, antibiotics and other materials and particles can be released at the right time and in the desired area.

Targeted and timely release of these particles improves their performance.

The INESCOP Institute in its other projects has also focused on the use of some polymer materials for medical purposes, as well as the pathology of shoe, to prevent foot infections.

Important point is that although the use of nanotechnology has the benefits in producing advanced materials, the final material should be such that in all aspects and in general terms, all aspects of safety and health are considered.

Therefore, the INESCOP Institute is investigating the human skin implanted cells in the laboratory environment. In this research, the possible effects of cytotoxic Nano materials on consuming goods technology are considered.

Also, the effects of environmental factors such as ultraviolet radiation or the ozone layer will also be investigated.

Economic situation and currency price for the growth of domestic industry of Iran

Economic situation and currency price for the growth of domestic industry of Iran

The economic situation and the currency price of Iran are already as you see, and nothing is resolved by delay or chiding.

This situation is a very good platform for some of the industries to grow in this situation and the currency price of Iran.

Economic situation and currency price for the growth of domestic industry of Iran

Turkey has sustained its economic by tourism, textiles and clothing industry.

Dear meson owners and all the friends who are fashion designers! A great platform is provided and you can make your own brand names like Zara and Mango.

Good quality, design and reasonable prices (no dependence on the price of the currency) and Iran’s production.

With the price of the currencies, the dollars, AED, lira, importing garments are not economical neither for the consumer nor for the importer and the industries.

my mother said that before the revolution, all Iranians bought Iranian cloths and they never purchase Turkish cloths, why do we see everywhere MADE IN TURKEY nowadays ?

It’s time to stop being absolute consumer and try to think about manufacturing domestic industries…

Domestic manufacturing industries are in danger of collapse due to our indolence. Who believes that the silk used to make Iranian handmade carpets is an import production?

Everyone was buying whatever he wants by cheap dollar, but now the price of dollar is high and no one knows what to do.

We have become a dependent, indolent, inactive, and completely consuming country, we just wait to see what other countries produce, then we purchase their products ostentatiously and sell them with double or triple price to our countrymen, and we are proud to be entrepreneur too.

A country that has no other extraordinary resource just oil, it is an oil dependent, and so if no country buy our oil, how we can survive?

Nowadays everyone is either thinking about leaving the country or nagging and blaming others.

How to make leather siding in building decor

How to make leather siding in building decor

It is a fact that today the new materials of the building decoration, such as the siding, have a tremendous effect on the design of interior decoration of each space, and interior designers can create a more beautiful environment, if they access the greater the variety of decorative materials.

Interestingly, sidings are a material that however diversified; the customers want to use more variety.

Leather is a material that can cover more space and is commonly used in luxury spaces and decors. Leather with a variety of designs and colors can be adapted to any design.

In order to use leather as a siding decor, the interior decoration of the building should be made of leather panels with different dimensions, designs and colors.

The walls are one of the main elements of buildings.

If you want to know what kind of cover for your home you should use, you need to know a few important points; such as the type of space usage, the amount of budget, the style of the furniture and the role of the wall that you intend to cover.

There are various sidings for this purpose in the market. You can choose one that suits your taste and style.

One of the sidings which has been used since the past is leather siding.

Types of leather siding

Fortunately, the leather sidings in the building today are designed and manufactured in a variety of different ways.
Leather rolls, panels and tile are of this category and are presented in a variety of models and designs.
If you want to design part of the wall, you can use a variety of leather siding like panels and tiles.

Suitable places to install leather siding

You can use leather siding on all the walls, but we recommend that you just install a leather siding on the part of the leather, because visually it is very attractive. The parts like the back of the TV table, above the bed, a part of the dining wall as the focal point and … are among the spaces that, in addition to be functional, can be a marked point in any home by having a leather cover.

The new materials of the building decor, such as the leather siding, have a tremendous effect on the design of interior decoration of walls

Appropriate color and design of the leather siding

Different designs have been made in the field of leather siding
The variety of this product is so high that sometimes it is difficult to detect them from composite panels and wallpaper.

Tension in the leather industry and presenting supporting strategies and challenges

Tension in the leather industry and presenting supporting strategies and challenges

The discussion of the tension in the leather industry is not a new discussion because this old industry in Iran has confronted many failures during the past few years in and Low productivity in leather production units.

Presenting the supporting strategies and challenges

In the new era and in the third millennium, the real tension is an inseparable reality of the internal nature of organizations.

Tensions actually occur (suddenly) as a result of natural and unnatural events and impose detriment and hardship on a human society or community.

Tension management for confronting surprising and unexpected situations needs experience, readiness, skill, promptitude, intelligence and creativity more than anything else.

Tension management is a process of planning and performance which is looking for and finds a tool to reduce the tension effects by observing tensions systematically and analyzing them.

The problems and tensions of leather industry in Iran

• Lack of the specific and efficient strategies and planning in leather industry

• Low productivity in leather production units

• Insufficient consideration for renewing leather production line

• Negative and frail competition between leather production factories

• Disharmony with world updated technology Because of tension in the leather industry

• Lack of skilled, expert and committed human resources in leather production units

• Traditional management in leather production units

• Lack of research and development and innovation in leather production units

• Low productivity in leather production units

• Traditional marketing

• Not considering branding

• Lack of raw skin with light and heavy quality

• Insufficient control over the way of animal’s slaughter for skin with good quality

• Lack of a specific spectating organization on how to maintain the slaughtered skin

• Lack of a specific spectating organization on how to carry skin to leather factory

• Issuing license to establish a factory without plan or regulation

• Not being independent in production of raw material with a good quality

By evaluating the problems of the industry, they finally can be divided in three groups:

A. The problems existed before tanning process in leather industry

• Insufficient light and heavy raw skin with good quality

• Insufficient control over the way of the animal’s slaughter for skin with good quality

• Lack of a specific spectating organization on how to maintain the slaughtered skin

• Lack of a specific spectating organization on how to carry skin to leather factory

B. Problems and challenges in tanning process

• Lack of skilled, expert and committed human resources in leather production units

• Traditional management in leather production units

• Lack of research and development and innovation in leather production units

• Low productivity in leather production units

• Insufficient consideration for renewing leather production line

• Lack of the specific and efficient strategies and planning in leather industry

• Issuing license to establish a factory without plan or regulation

• Negative and frail competition between leather production factories

• Not being independent in production of raw material with a good quality

C. Problems in the distribution and export system

• Traditional marketing

• Not considering branding

• Inability and problems in securing and receiving export currency

In the following we will explain and provide a strategy to some of the issues and problems mentioned

• Lack of specific and efficient strategy and planning in leather industry

The need to plan and efficient strategy in every work is evident for everyone, and the leather industry is not an exception in this matter.

Because there are several incomplete and inefficient strategy and planning programs and high costs to develop them, there is no accurate planning for using the experiences of other well-known countries in the industry.

All the executives in the leather industry, unions, associations, and even strategy formulators are thinking of their own name, workshop, factory, or organization and they do not see a good future for the industry.

Since the manifestation of the leather industry in Iran to nowadays, there has not been a comprehensive or operational program to improve and give quality to the country’s animal and skin industries.

Skin as the basic tanning material should be considered all the time and the skin is the life giving factor for Charmshahrs.

Not paying attention to skin leads to environmental irrecoverable damages and finally low quality leather.

Issuing license to establish factories without plan or regulation

Making small production units without complete production lines does not have high added value and will not be able to compete internationally or even for the the long term domestically.

The lack of comprehensive and operational guiding plan and presenting principled agreement and license for establishing a production unit and not paying attention to priorities of investment in different sectors of this chain have made a problem which we are confronting with these days.

Disharmony in different sectors such as custom and Bureau of Industry, Mining and Trade and other organizations (which shows the lack of plan in leather industry) cause the leather production units not holding principled agreement and license to have activities in domestic market or even in export easily.

In presenting principled agreement, a specific plan or program should be considered as the basis.

A person or a group, who refers to the related entities for investment and receiving principled agreement, should be familiarized with the rules by providing needed training and after gaining required competence the principled agreement is issued, even the old principled agreements should be checked periodically.

It is worth noting that there is also a certain degree of freedom in the provision of principled agreement, since the provision of principled agreement restrictively and strictly leads to monopoly.

Negative and fragile competition between leather factories in tension in the leather industry

Each industry can flourish when it is able to do correct financial management and achieve development and innovation through sound marketing management.

Now, inadequate supervision of related organizations causes creation of many workhouses without license and eventually has led to producing leather with low quality.

Because of the high cost of production and lack of expert management and familiar to up dated knowledge, unfortunately many of production house works, in order to reduce their ended cost and control the market, have attempted to produce low-quality products and have tried to reduce their production costs by using a variety of inappropriate methods, eventually offering their customers more than one year to sell because of their lack of knowledge of modern financial management.

Supporting autarky in producing raw material with high quality

Dependence of major part of raw material in tanning industry to export has led to many problems.

In the meantime, raw materials produced domestically, do not have the capability to compete with their foreign counterparts or are not manufactured completely inside the country as in the case of finished materials.

Disharmony with modern technologies

One the biggest problems of leather industry are, not being familiar with modern management science.

For example most production unit owners have several organizational positions and work as marketing manager, production manager, finance manager, etc. in their units without division of labor.

While they do not fully aware of the most basic rules of production, economics, management and technology, this makes the concept of profit, loss, innovation, productivity, technology, and so forth meaningless to the production managers and it makes problems that they face in Charmshahr

Studies in leading countries in the leather industry show that they use a high level of technology which results in higher productivity.

Machinery with more than 5 years of life in the leather industry not only are not able to compete globally, but also they will soon lose the domestic market, which also faces an irregular import of leather.

Traditional marketing

When the factories of the leather industry succeed in production after having overcome many problems, they face another problem that although it may not be larger than the previous problems, is not lesser and less important than the problems, that problems are associated with the distribution of sales and marketing of products.

Since leather is produced from natural leather and the production unit can only affect its tanning, and the rest of its features are inspired by nature, this causes leather buyers to pay tanners in long-term period, not paying or returning the bought product after long time.
Tension in leather industry and presenting supporting strategies and challenges.

The discussion of the tension in the leather industry is not a new discussion, Low productivity in leather production units
Not considering branding

Since the produced leather should be transformed to leather products such as leather bag, shoe, belt furniture, or cloth, the end user is related only to leather producer brand, branding in leather industry is always inconspicuous because leather customers do not make themselves committed to protect the brand of leather producer.

This is meaningless in leather industry.

If the end consumer, the general public, requests the leather goods sellers for a leather product identification which shows the type of leather and other equipment with which the finished product is manufactured, and force the competent organizations of the leather product to do this as well, branding in manufacturing units will have a special meaning and everyone will try to produce high quality leather and adhere to the newest global standards.

Conclusion, suggestions and strategy in tension in the leather industry

Leather industry needs a comprehensive new and applicable strategic plan that must be formulated from the time of animal breeding, slaughter, and skin care, skin carrying, tanning and production processes by using the world’s modern science and utilizing the experiences of leading countries in the industry. The industry is globalizing.

By these interpretations it can be suggested the most important solutions and approaches to solve the problems of the leather industry are as follows:

۱٫ Formulating a comprehensive and operational guideline program under supervision of experienced expert in leather industry.

۲٫ Using of modern educational centers in leather industry to educate experts

۳٫ Supervising principled agreement for productive units.

۴٫ More effective use of scientific systems in marketing and sale and all the suggestions
