'CRAFTICA' by Formafantasma Turns Leftover Animal Odds and Ends into Art

'CRAFTICA' by Formafantasma is a new design exhibit that turns leftover leather and animal organs into amazing works of art. The series was commissioned by fashion house FENDI, and uses actual leftover leather from the brand's craftsmen.

CRAFTICA by Formafantasma isn't unique because it makes use of leftover leather; it's unique because of the type of leather and other materials used. Salmon leather, leather made from bark, cow bones and animal bladders are just a small sampling of the materials used to create these pieces. The idea behind using so many animal materials is to take you back to a time before artificial materials were widely used in everyday products. Formafantasma has succeeded on that front, with their scallop shell spoons and cow bladder water containers standing out for both their form and function.
