I think this is pretty cool and the fact that they’re doing their bit to save the environment is just incredible. An Argentine fashion firm has found a new source of inspiration – and materials – in an unlikely location: oil industry burlap plastic sacks from the country’s huge Vaca Muerta shale formation, which they recycle to make shoes, bags and purses.
I mean look at those bags, they look very trendy and somewhat retro – a business I’m sure a lot of us would support.
