Plastex#9 Eco-friendly Material by Reform Studio

Plastex#9 is an environmentally friendly handmade fabric which can be transformed into different objects. This project started in order to reduce major problem that Egypt currently has, waste. The design company has done great research to find out that reusing is actually much better than recycling, it helps to save a lot of resources. For this project, the company chose to re-use plastic bags, also, this material is the second most discarded product in the country and is not collected for recycling.

All these plastic bags are collected, sterilized, and cut into different thin stripes which later are interwoven on a handloom, creating strong and durable fabric that tolerates sun rays. This project aims to raise environmental awareness and what can we do to help, reviving the weaving craft also empowers local communities. Thanks to Egyptian craftsmen, the weaving industry can start the production process, any other highly technology machinery are avoided to ensure a simple sustainable process in the making of each product.
