Generally when I blow through a pair of denim, I just toss it out and never think of it again. But apparently, that pair of old, shredded jeans can be ground down to a pulp and reconstituted into a fresh pair of pants.
Hypebeast says that Swedish denim manufactuer Nudie Jeans and the fashion retailer Barney’s have teamed up to make 500 pairs of jeans using this recycled denim. But the coup d’grace here is the video showing the process by which these things are made. It’s mechanical. It’s hypnotizing. It’s pretty. [Hypebeast]
