Artist creates eco friendly clothes from aluminum pull tabs

 
 

We’ve reported about eco fashion trends ranging from solar powered clothes to attire made using recycled wine corks and the newest on the same lines is clothing made using recycled aluminum can pull tabs. Created by Pennsylvania-based Michael Mixell of Pull My Tabs, the quirky clothing range includes everything from neckties to entire dresses made using the same raw materials. Each item requires a lot of pull tabs, with the shirt consisting of 2478 pull tabs alone.


The artist doesn’t just design the clothing for art shows, but sells them too, hoping to find buyers who don’t really want their clothes to be made only from fabric. Moreover, if you are one of those who don’t throw away cans right after the drink inside is finished, you can help Michael in making these unique clothes by donating tabs.
