Second-Hand Clothing Seats
The Giving Tree Project Turns Used Togs into Stumps

By: Amelia Roblin (Superstar) Jun 9, 11

Though the First World may believe that all commodities have expiration dates, the Giving Tree project is a reminder that someone’s trash can be another’s treasure. To demonstrate this, designer Jongho Park has taken second-hand clothing and wrapped it up into objects that mimic the forms of tree stumps.

Throwing away salvageable apparel can thus be likened to chopping down a tree, because the metaphor views discarding your duds as a total waste of resources. What’s been created with these unique pieces of art is a collection of loaded objects that combine layer upon layer of used clothing to produce, not only a statement, but a functional furnishing. The hand-sewn stools of the Giving Tree project offer a place to sit and ponder your own possessions.
