each pod is made entirely from renewable resources. the rigid part is formed out of cooked wool – an entirely new sustainable material developed by freyja for the london design museum. a bio plastic made from potato starch is used to bind the natural fibers together to form a new composite blend. each dome is covered with a handcrafted wet felted cover – using a particularly durable course fleece, deriving from native bred sheep found in the UK.
