Paper to wear


Marian Schoettle

It’s waterproof, breathable and against expectations the paper based material Tyvek does not tear. Enough for designer Marian Schoettle to present a clothing line called Post Industrial Folk Wear with jackets, dresses and skirts.

The details in the clothing are made of leftovers from local shops, a snowboard shop and polishing disks.

Tyvek producer DuPont takes back all used or leftover material to recycle it into new, however lesser quality material. The paper material is also based on carbon, but instead of only asking us to recycle it, is already partly made of recycled material. Since there’s a big flow of material coming from envelopes and building insulation, it sounds like a clever thing to cross over to a smaller industry.
