Sonic Fabric : Clothes made from Recycled Cassette Ribbons

I am still trying to wrap my head around this one but I am amazed / excited it exists at all. As the subject header explains, an artist is making fabric out of cassette tape ribbons. There is even a way to listen to the fabric which sounds like a horror soundtrack of garbled chaos but hey, there are people who love that kind of thing (like me!). The artist has created clothes, ties, and works of art using this material she has loomed himself.

I am in awe.
