We love the one-of-a-kind octagonal paper container and the plastomer material the balls are made of, which significantly extends the fresh ball feel. The name “Triniti” comes from the ball being sustainable, high-performing, and… because of these two innovations, Triniti maintains that fresh feel 4X longer!
