Caption: Clothes of seaweed fibres. Clothes designer, in this case in a Olivier Lapidus studio, makes clothes with cloth made of dried seaweed fibres. Seaweed is a type of marine algae. Its fibres are strong, cheap, biodegradable, and are also a renewable resource. Lapidus uses fibres taken from seaweed which was grown at the Centre for the Study and Development of Seaweed (CEVA) in the Cotes d'Armor department of France. Lapidus' spring 1997 collection (seen here) used a total of 25 kilogrammes of seaweed fibre. Photographed in Paris, France.
