Clothes made from Ocean Shrimp and Crab Shells

Erik de Laurens
"I created a surprising material made of 100% fish scales ( no added compound ). The fishing industry generates several circumstances where many tons of fish scales are leftover. Using this waste as resources for the production of his fish-scale-plastic, I tried to highlight the potentiality of these industrial flaw.
In order to test the material I have designed 3 pairs of goggles and glasses inspired by swimming goggles and a table with an inlay of a fish. I have also extended the range of colours in the tumbler previously designed. "
