Abstract:

As part of the work, preliminary tests were made of textile materials with bamboo fibres for elements of children’s footwear. The need to expand the range of materials which can be used in children’s footwear is dictated by the specific anatomic structure of the child’s foot during the first years of life. The research was focused on the area related to the mechanical and hygienic properties of the bamboo materials used. In order to make a qualitative analysis of the possibility of using bamboo materials in footwear elements,  commonly used material like cotton was examined. The studies performed clearly indicate that the application of bamboo textiles as footwear materials is possible and show that they can be better than cotton materials as control samples. It is important to creating appropriate conditions conducive to the proper development of the foot.
