Re-Used Tabloid Wardrobes
Recycled Newspaper Clothing by Ivano Vitali is Environment-Friendly

If you’re looking to be fashionable and eco-friendly, try buying some recycled newspaper clothing from Italian ecologist and sculptor Ivano Vitali.

Vitali starts by ripping up strips of newspaper and spends countless hours sorting them into colors. Once that is done he spins the newspaper into thread using his own special tools including needles and wooden hooks. Putting just one ball of thread together can take hours and an entire dress needs more than one ball.

Once all the thread is ready, Vitali knits his way to a greener world by creating magnificent pieces of recycled newspaper clothing. His works have included full dresses and coats, and a bikini for hot summer days. The amount of work that goes into one article of recycled newspaper clothing is excruciating, but the final product is totally worth it.
