Black and white plastic bags, synthetic leather strips
This project was an attempt to make a new material out of used plastic trash bags. I have focused on black and white bags, in order to create a unisex and graphic line of products.
The plastic bags are presses in 4-5 layers using heat. After pressing the bags what comes out is a plastic sheet with a leathery feeling. On the plastic sheet I used other colored bags in order to create patterns and shapes. The plastic sheets can be glued, sawed and cut.
