Rumen Leather

haute couture with organic waste

2/2011

The Dutch designer Mandy den Elzen has attracted a lot of attention through the use of unusual organic waste materials. After her project "Algae vase", in which she transformed algae fibres into containers and vases, she began in 2011 to use waste material from cows like, for example, the cow stomach, in order to create a kind of leather looking material with an interesting hexagonal honeycomb structure. The material is somewhat transparent and is available under the name "Rumen Leather" in pieces in sizes up to 400 x 500 mm with a thickness starting at 3 mm.
