Ochre, gelatin, glycerin, and water. With these four natural substances, Soowon Chae has developed a sustainable and biodegradable material that he calls Ocragela. Sustainable and biodegradable, the material can be used to make a variety of products and furniture as well as in flooring.
Ocragela can be customized to a leather-like, rubber/silicone-like and plastic-like material by changing the proportions of ingredients, temperatures and the way of pouring. In addition, it can also be hand-stitched or machine-sewn just as you would a normal textile material.
