Protean Panel is a product made with an infamous fruit, Aegle Marmelos also known as Bael. It is a fruit which is found in major parts of India. Aegle Marmelos has a hard shell outside, which is mostly discarded. As of today, no product has been made from this fruit.

The product is multipurpose with versatile panels which can be used in many different ways. The multipurpose panels can be added together to give you the desired product for your interiors.
