Cambrelle® is the world’s best known, most used branded shoe lining. The secret is in its unique fibre structure.

High absorption of moistureCambrelle® has the capacity to absorb in its fibre construction up to 350 % of its own dry weight before it will feel damp. This means it can easily cope with perspiration associated with the most strenuous activities.
Dries quickly – inhibits odourIt does not transfer moisture to other parts of the shoe from where it cannot easily escape or evaporate. Once the wearer takes his foot out of a shoe lined with Cambrelle®, the stored moisture evaporates straight back into the atmosphere. By releasing moisture this way, shoes last longer as the bacteria associated with perspiration do not begin to break down other parts of the shoe. Shoes recover faster. Cambrelle® will not rot and is safe against mildew.
Durable and long lastingCambrelle® non-woven linings will usually outlast the life of any footwear.
Added comfortFootwear comfort relies on keeping feet feeling dry. Cambrelle® delightfully cool in summer and warm in winter. Even its construction provides a comfortable cushioning effect.
