**For over 30 years**, Cienta has been specializing in creating high-quality vulcanized footwear for children. Founded in 1982, the family-owned company Calzados Cienta started the kids' canvas and slipper brand with generations worth of expertise in shoe-making. The factory is located near the wine region of La Rioja in Spain, a region that is deeply rooted in the process of vulcanizing natural rubber, and has been the only manufacturing source of Cienta shoes. Dedicated to promoting the natural and correct development of children's feet, the entire production and design process of Cienta is centered on quality and comfort, making use of only natural materials and the most advanced technology. Our production system consists of the use of the **Vulcanizing System.** This manufacturing process was used by our ancestors right where we do it presently, an unsued system, nonwithstanding its **ecological attributes**, Cienta Shoes founders bet on it, giving new life to an ancient system as it was combined with the latest technological advances. In order to provide our customers with reassurace and offer proof for what we claim, we hold the **Green Trade World certification, which confirms that in our producing process, from beginning to end, ecological materials have been used to respect the environment, what turns us into a leading company in the industry.** **Cienta footwear is made essentially from Cotton and Rubber.** Cotton comes from Spain, and it features the Green Trade World Certificate, which confirms it is a material obtained without health detrimental substances, without the use of underaged labor force, is 100% ecological, all of which is available to know by looking the label adjoint to Cienta Shoes footwear. On the other hand, rubber, directly from rubber tree, is top quality as it is an essential part of the shoe which will let you walk comfortably and flexibly, all of those essential items for high-quality footwear manufacturing. The ancient production system, revisited and enhanced by Cienta Shoes creators, consists essentially in the union of the two raw materials, cotton and rubber. **All of that without the use of any chemical or glue product, Cienta Shoes footwear is manufactured exclusively thanks to heating and force of pressure..** Such union is verified thanks to the peculiar machinery, molds at an elevated temperature (170ºC/ 338ºF), on which rubber is placed to melt and then adhere to the cotton forming the shoe, excerting pressure over both.
