How did you decide on the material to make your products?
Specifying materials is a technical process, and it's always a balance between function, form, and environmental impact. It can be a tricky balance. We often prototype a single product for over 6 months to ensure it meets our own criteria before we put it out to the public. The materials must be fit for purpose first, then we can explore things like durability, recycled content, natural versus synthetic, end of life, energy to create, chemical usage and waste, place of origin and many more variables that will result in an end product that we are proud of.
