Clothes of seaweed fibres. Clothing made from seaweed fibres on a tailor's dummy, in this case in a Olivier Lapidus studio. 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 used a total of 25 kilogrammes of seaweed fibres. Photographed in Paris, France.
