What is it?
Specially developed by atom, wood fibre is a combination of recycled wood with PLA and PBAT (two cornstarch-based ingredients). We worked with our manufacturers to create this material specifically for us to use in consumer tech accessories. This material innovation means that our Split wood fibre is the only case in the world made of this formulation.
Why use it?
Our wood fibre material has a resilient finish and doesn’t show scratches, stains or wear the same way as plastic does. There is a slight flexibility to the material, so it moves easily enough to take on and off your phone and has a smooth tactility perfect for grip.
A great alternative to plastic, wood fibre is strong and durable and can also be recycled into itself.
We never use virgin wood, only wood waste product so this material doesn’t require any extra plants or trees to be grown. Plus, it locks carbon into the case through the wood chips.
