These Unique Clothes are Made from Rubber Bands

As far as I know, most clothes are made out of fabric like cotton, polyester, leather, or nylon. But this unusual fashion line is made entirely out of rubber bands.

Student Rie Sakamoto designed the stretchy clothes as part of her Integrated Design thesis project at Japan’s Tama Art University. She made each piece in the line by painstakingly knitting rubber bands into panels, then assembling them into the shapes of a sweater dress and a matching cardigan.

It took Sakamoto over a year to knit all of the rubber bands together, but the result was worth it. Not only does the clothing look really amazing, but I suppose she could always pull off a band here and there if she wanted to start a rubber band fight, or if she needed to band some things together.

I’d imagine you’d need to be pretty skinny to pull off this look, or you might look like you’re wearing a sausage casing. I also wonder how difficult it is to put these super-elastic clothes or take them off.
