BIOGUM / SOLE
BiogumTM is based on renewable raw materials and with the same quality and processability as
traditional fossil based TPUs.The polyols used in the reaction of the plastics are bio based
derived from cornstarch and are substituted to the traditional fossil based polyols. It can reach
60% bio-based levels and it’s 100% recyclable.

CornBase is a bio-based alternative to leather derived from non GMO corn starch. The
molecules extracted from corn starch are transformed with green chemistry to replace The
part that was traditionally derived from fossil materials.

a great amount of CO2 compared to using virgin material and reduces the problem of
plastic in landfills and oceans.
Tied to the aesthetic innovation and technical invention that have always changed the identity of knitwear, Missoni is one of the best known, loved and recognised fashion and design brands in the world.
Missoni style is the result of a partnership between Ottavio and Rosita who decided, in 1953, to set up a knitwear business, and were soon at the cutting edge of Italian fashion. The couple started a family and their children Vittorio, Luca and Angela, the brand’s creative director since 1996, grew up in direct contact with their parents’ work.
Closely involved with the business, they took on increasingly responsible roles, becoming co-creators in a project that continues to seduce and excite today. Missoni is now one of the best representatives of Italian fashion and design excellence around the world. With its pioneering multicoloured aesthetic vision, it continues to influence the contemporary lifestyle, thanks also to the success of the Missoni Home line.
