When asked why Pecanpals made from wood instead of the typical PVC this is what team Noferin had to say:
Apart from the obvious environmental benefits of using sustainably harvested wood instead of plastic or vinyl, we chose to use wood because we wanted to expose a traditional material in this new scene of designer toys. We became aware of designer toys as a medium two and a bit years ago. We were really intrigued by this new platform of artistic creativity which presented an innovative and approachable avenue to the art world. Wood has a weight to it, a true sense of solidity. Wood is living. It has grain, pits and pores and is a beautiful medium to work with. We wanted to create a set of figures that would stand the test of time.
