Eco Friendly Denim Sofa

As you can imagine there are millions of pairs of jeans made very year, yet at the same time millions of pairs of jeans are thrown away, but denim is tough durable material which could be used for so many different things like covering furniture for instance.

This concept may seem to be a rather strange idea, after denim is not usually associated with furnishings, but in Japan the re-using of materials is a big thing and denim is coming through a good hard wearing and stylish covering for furniture. It takes three pairs of jeans to make a denim stool, but don’t worry you have to provide your own jeans for the purpose!

The artistic installation of recycled denim creations were shown at last season’s Japan Fashion Week. However, when an otherwise ordinary furniture manufacturer takes up this sort of project it shows the extent to which the idea of re-using materials (and eco-friendly lifestyle in general) has entered the mainstream psyche.
