Soilid exhibits the combination of soil, fungi and other natural materials. The recipe ingredients are measured by volume/weight and mixed together, then left to rise overnight at room temperature. The combination of the soil with fungi and sugars creates a chemical reaction that allows the "earth" to rise - the "dough" will double in size.

The "Soilid" farrago can be shaped and molded in a plaster or wood mold to create any desirable object. After baking, the structure becomes solid and strong enough to be sanded, sawn and drilled.

With low cost ingredients that are available in the closest market, this new material is easily generated and produced. In addition to its accessibility, Soilid is a non-heavy and eco-friendly material.
