Biodegradable Sunglasses Made From Hair

As hard as it may be to believe, these sunglasses by Studio Swine are made out of human hair! This collection of trendy glasses really explores the sustainable potential of human hair. With millions of pounds worth of human hair being exported by the UK beauty industry, the possibilities of human hair as a cheap and sustainable material may not be as far-fetched as it sounds.

Studio Swine's collection features frames that are 100% biodegradable and eco-friendly. Utilizing human hair combined with bioresin as the binding agent, no harmful substances are released during production and the result is an eco-friendly pair of sunglasses. Although the project was made just to explore the possibilities of human hair as a material, we wouldn't be too surprised to see similarly eco-friendly glasses popping up on the market.
