Take advantage of the cigarette butts to Fashion Trends

Quick View is not only beautiful mesmerize with the latest collection of clothing, but you can get in many ways. For example, using the materials used that are not used again.

As quoted from Femalefirst, Monday (19/1/2009), if you want to look fashionable, harmless utilizing used materials that are not used, such as cigarette butts.

This idea first emerged from the designer Alexandra Guerrero. He was inspired from the people who throw cigarette butts after smoked.

Alexandra and volunteers collect the cigarettes from the streets and sterilise them. They are then dried, separated and made into fabric. Toxins such as nicotine are removed.

Not only that, Alexandra The material left over is combined with wool to create the fabric used

"This project began as an idea for my thesis," she told the blog Cool Hunting. "We always wanted to do sustainable design but we didn't want to do something that was already seen, so we started thinking of a waste that was unnoticed and then we thought of cigarette butts."

So far hats, gloves, sweaters and blankets have been made. They can be purchased from the Mantis website.
