Vin-T Bikini Recycles Old Garbage into Something New

— June 22, 2010 — Eco
New York-based 'Vin-T Bikini' brand recycles vintage t-shirts into bikinis. They do this by using all sorts of vintage tees salvaged from schools, rock concerts, clubs and so on. Robin Ashford-Macy is the brains behind Vin-T Bikini, which was established in 2007.

Each custom bikini is lined to control stretch. This way you don't have to worry about Ozzie or Blondie not covering your booty at an inappropriate moment.
