- story by MaterialDistrict

Wool-aluminium is a combination of metal and wool in a pre-shaped form. This flexible material was developed from weaving experiments. It consists of pre-shaped aluminium profiles with thick, heavy strands of wool woven around them. The ends are finished with stiff rubber caps. This results in a flexible but sturdy effect.

The manufacturer’s goal is to implement (hand) weaving in a new, constructive way, as well as making it recognisable as a craft. The finished material is a flat textile which can be transformed into a dimensional object, and vice versa. So the material has the advantage of use in 2D as well as 3D applications.
