The craftsman, Padraig said he used steamed pear which was dyed black and poplar on the inlay around the edge of the violins.

He then used berries to dye the wood inlays and local spring water which he used for his adhesive.

Client-inspired creation

Padraig said the idea was sparked by a request from a client who asked him to make a vegan instrument a couple of years ago.

"It was an intriguing question. I thought how many vegans are there, potential musicians whose ethics won't allow them to play the violin - it must be awful. The world is changing a lot at the moment... particularly the young generation... they're making big changes in the world and I'm very proud of it." Padraig revealed.

The Vegan Society disclosed that it is only the body of the violin that was registered with the trademark.
