Recycling is becoming the trend, and designers are getting in tune with the sustainable trend. French designer Sophie Young has recycled used Christmas trees, turning the pine needles into sexy underwear to ensure that the trees don’t go to waste after the season. According to the DoYouGreen designer the fabrics are as delicate, and by the time the pine needles are transformed into undies they have lost their prickly touch.
The fabric is described like a kind of viscose, a fibre similarly made from regenerated wood cellulose, making the lingerie hygienic as much air can circulate through the fabric. The garments also absorb twice as much humidity as cotton, helping to keep bacteria off. As well as this, each item is dyed using eco-friendly non-toxic dyes for consumer safety.
