This article presents the growing phenomena of self-produced materials, namely ‘Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Materials’, and illustrates the pattern of conditions and circumstances which led to the emergence of this approach to materials. The DIY Materials phenomena is derived from a broader concept defined as ‘emerging materials experiences’ and through their definition we think in new and meaningful interaction between users and these new materials qualities derived by a self-production process. Through the presentation of a case study, NeWool, a biocomposite made of starch and wool fibers, we outline a design practice based on direct experimentation, tinkering and envisioning for the designer.
