While no where near as pure in content as Jésus Bubu Négron’s cigarette butt street rug, Alexandra Guerrero’s creations are noteworthy nonetheless. Being composed of 10% purified cigarette butts and 90% natural sheep wool, Alexandra’s Mantis line of clothing is a very nice upcycling of cigarette butts, those ubiquitous flecks stippling the waste landscape across the globe.
Good show Alexandra! Thanks for helping to beautify such thoughtless litter.
