Solidwool was born from the idea to create something beautiful: sustainable design with an unbreakable link to nature.

A gift of nature wool is natural and fully sustainable. Sheep live a free-range lifestyle and as long as there is grass they produce a new fleece every year. In recent years Herdwick wool, historically used in the carpet industry, has dramatically lost its value and is considered almost worthless.

Combining Herdwick wool with bio-resin Solidwool turns the way wool is used on its head to create a beautiful, strong and unique composite material - a sustainable alternative to injection moulded plastics.
