100% natural rubber
Latex from the rubber tree (Hevea) was first processed in 1928 using vulcanisation, invented by Mr Charles Goodyear.
The natural rubber used by Vulli comes from the Hevea trees that grow in Malaysia.
Every morning, before the daytime heat sets in, the milky liquid that oozes from the cells beneath the bark is collected from these millions of Hevea trees. This liquid is known as "latex".
Latex is natural, elastic and water-resistant, acts as an insulator, is pleasant to the touch and has a distinctive smell.
Vulli takes this latex, heats it, and then applies a special process and a rotational moulding technique.
The result, after 14 manual operations, is the wonderful little "Sophie the Giraffe".
Natural rubber is a renewable, sustainable resource and is biodegradable.
