These boots are the work of Chilean industrial design student Camila Labra, and made mostly of recycled plastic bags. The boots are built by fusing layers of plastic polyethylene bags together to create a thicker and more resistant material to work with. Their interior is covered with quilted piqué cotton fabric to make them more comfortable and prevent overheating. According to the designer, the boots are impermeable, flexible, light and non toxic.
The line of boots is named Dacca (aka Dhaka) after Bangladesh’s capital, one of the most polluted with plastic bags in the world (the bags were banned in the city in 2002).
Made after special orders, the boots are sold for 22,000 Chilean Pesos (45 USD).
