“Amazon Indians dipped their feet in the latex from hevea tree and smoked them in a fire to coagulate the rubber first tennis shoes…”
This quote is picked from the book “The Romance of Rubber” published by the United States Rubber Company. Long before the discovery of America by the Europeans, rubber was already used by Indians to waterproof clothes or to coat unbreakable gummy bottles and, of course, to make shoes. The first explorers were amazed by this new substance and its infinite applications… In 1745 the French scientist LaCondamine is the first to refer to the “cahuchu”.
