Tree Bark Dress
Pushing the boundaries of squirrel homes and paper companies
How it happened
Jessica is a current junior at the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston, and decided to peruse the project for their recent "no textile" assignment at school. Most of her friends exclaimed the bark would be much to brittle for clothing material, but Jessica was up for the challenge.
"I was finally where I wanted to be, getting to do what I wanted to do, and I wanted the dress to reflect that," she reply's when asked about her spontaneous idea. The dress received lots of positive attention as well as the important experience Jessica gained from going through with the project.
