Forget Made in China; this new hip eco art project is called Remade in Chile and focuses on recycling old Puma sneakers into works of art.

These stunning pieces were all created as part of an art project, the first prize going to a lamp (see second image) made of old Puma trainers. The first image of the corsetted dress is the piece that won second place. The gallery also includes reclaimed Puma shoes turned into insects, cubes, masks, flower pots and a cougar (the Puma logo.)
