Designed by Ty Syml, the ALGÂU Pendant is the result to the studio research undertaken in Pembrokeshire into the utilisation of local seaweed on beaches. The range is also a continuation of TySyml previous work based on material experimentation to products.
By combining seaweed with recycled waste paper, the studio has created a bio-material which is 100% sustainable and adds value to the environment. The material formed from this combination is tough and durable with a texture similar to cork. It is tactile and possesses a natural warmth, with subtle smells of the sea. Different varieties of seaweed can be used to produce different colours and different characteristics.
