For example, Michelle Brand designed an aesthetic curtain most people would perceive to be waste or rubbish. The fabric is composed of plastic drinks bottle bases, which have been cut, sanded and then tagged together. When asked what kind of special material and craft she applied in her designs, she answered: “I use plastic drinks bottles in my designs. It is so much more challenging to use an existing shape and material. My inspiration came from my method of enquiry about plastic as a material. I deconstructed the material, rather than asked, “what can I make from plastic bottles?”. I applied my creative design, maker, and artistic skills to transform the overlooked into the beautiful. I would like to think that my designs are the Sex in the City of the reuse world!”
