Kuraray Co., Ltd.
The Daimaru, Inc. (Headquarters: Osaka) and shoe manufacturer Bath Corporation (Headquarters: Kobe) have jointly developed a line of ladies' shoes using Kuraray's luxury man-made leather PARCASSIO. Based on the concept, "Broken-in comfort, right out of the box," the two types of Bath Craft office shoes are perfect for job hunting and for starting that new job. They will go on sale March 5.
PARCASSIO is a new material that combines a luxurious feel with comfort and wearability deriving from its air and moisture permeability. It is the first man-made leather processed in the same way as traditional natural leather, which gives it the same feel and appearance as high-grade natural leather. PARCASSIO is 30% lighter than natural leather, has higher air and moisture permeability, and is much easier to care for. These properties make PARCASSIO far more comfortable and convenient than previous man-made leather.
