unknown elastomer

Hi, i came across this project and found it very interesting, i hope to do something similar myself but dont know much about elastomers...

the part i'm interested in: 'the volumes are first translated with software into 2d projections of themselves that can be directly programmed into the machines that stitch the pattern into a carrying surface. The carrying surface is then dissolved and the embroidered 2d pattern becomes free to form a 3d object. The objects formed by the stitched honeycomb structures are fixed over a fiberglass mould and impregnated with resin in order to make them rigid and constructive.'

so some kind of post molding vulcanisation? any ideas on what material is being used here, or other comments people have on this process would be very useful.
