A contemporary material which is biodegradable and made out of only natural ingredients
Ocragela was created by mixing gelatin and ochre with glycerin and water. The material can be hand-stitched or machine-sewn as a normal textile material. And also it can be customised to leather-like, rubber/silicone-like and plastic-like by changing the proportions, temperatures and the way of pouring.
Currently, attempts to develop the means of efficient utilisation of Ocragela are continued. Applications for products, textiles, or flooring materials are experimented. Also, I am in touch with several companies who asked for material samples for future collaboration opportunities.
