Go Go Boots out of Recycled Plastic Bags? Go from Rags to Riches, and Be Hot to Trot in these Sexy Shoes.

Botas Dacca Boots made out of recycled plastic bags, are hot to trot.

They are made exclusively by a noted Chilean industrial design student named Camila Labra. The interiors are constructed to be comfortable and soft with a natural piqué and the green highlight is that the exteriors are made mostly of recycled plastic bags.

Camila carefully constructs these cute boots by fusing many layers of plastic bags together to create a thicker and more resistant new material. Treehugger reports: “that according to the designer, the boots are impermeable, flexible, light and non toxic.”

Dacca the name of the shoeline comes from careful thought. Named to have us ponder the thought that Dhaka, Bangladesh’s capital, is one of the most polluted with plastic bags (banned in 2002) globally. What a wonderful new textile material, that helps recreate a mess, into something sexy.
