We saw plastic, fabric and even some other renewable materials that were used as primary ingredients for new cushions or couches before but using old human hair should be another interesting idea to check out.
Called the Bare Hair project, the new eco cushions are made of human hair and old plastic bottles. The new initiative aims to encourage more ideas on how to reuse waste and creating functional and handy materials. Designed by Ola Giertz, he shares that an average person’s hair grows about 18cm a year; Sweden’s 9 million people grow 1,620,000cm of hair, most of which is disposed of.
Whatever the case may be and even if people may not be too fond about using human hair as a prime material, you have to admit that the whole thing does make sense and that it is a neat idea with clean intent.
