Solidwool

Solidwool was born from the idea to create something beautiful - and to create sustainable design with an unbreakable link to nature. A unique composite material, Solidwool is made in the UK using British Wool and bio-resin. Think fibreglass, but with wool. Original founders, Justin and Hannah Floyd, wanted to create something that was beautiful and had purpose. Solidwool - a material with endless opportunity. Since 2020, new custodians Roger Oates Design have supported the development of Solidwool through re-engineering the material, developing production and re-designing the Hembury chair. Herdwick - the iconic breed of the Lake District was the original inspiration behind Solidwool. The upland sheep dramatically lost its value in recent years. Historically used in the UK carpet industry, this wool had fallen out of favour and was considered almost worthless, a by-product of sheep farming.
