Eco-Chic Footwear
Dacca Boots Are Made From Plastic Bags

By: Pearl (Star) Jan 5, 09

Chilean industrial design student Camila Labra’s collection of footwear made from recycled plastic bags are not only great for the environment but stylish as well. They are definitely practical because the boots are waterproof!

The lightweight boots are made from multiple layers of the plastic fused together for strength and yet provide flexibility. For walking comfort, the interior of the footwear is lined with quilted cotton fabric. Each pair costs $45.

The designer named her custom order collection after the Bangladeshi capital of Dacca (Dhaka) because it was once inundated with plastic bags.
