An innovative approach to materials and craftsmanship
A novel product and material requires novel production processes. We've striven to innovate at every level, while simultaneously elevating our core tenets of craftsmanship and artistry.
A hands-on approach to every aspect of production
To make our products, we employ a variety of custom processes including the careful mixing of raw silicone, expert blending of color pigments, extrusion by hand of the silicone cord, and artisanal weaving of the individually extruded cord strands.
A full spectrum of color
We hand mix each of our colors in-house. Our current color library has over 100 unique hues. All of our color pigments are rated to the highest UV durability standards.
Made from custom-engineered high-performance silicone cord
We've meticulously crafted our silicone cord from the ground up to feature a satisfying and leather-like surface quality, an optimal density and comfort level, and a vast array of brilliant colors. Our silicone cord is of the purest quality and is completely non-toxic.
A technical material—reimagined
Silicone is the material of choice in both cooking and medical applications. Silicone cord, in its traditional application as an engine component in heavy machinery, needs to be extremely durable to do its job. Our material is UV and fire resistant, can withstand sustained submersion in salt water and prolonged exposure to extreme temperatures, and is exceedingly durable and will not degrade or lose its spring-back.
Each SHORE product is entirely handwoven in our London workshop
Our team of weavers expertly craft each and every piece in-house. This allows us to have full control and oversight of the entire process of production.
Our techniques have been invented and perfected in-house, taking cues from traditional weaving methods but updated for a novel material. Silicone cord’s density, stretchiness, and large diameter presented an exciting challenge where we could explore, improve, and innovate.
