"This series is a response to the current movement to eliminate plastic bags from consumer use due to their negative environmental impact. Each one-of-a-kind sculpture is based on a plastic bag I have collected in a shop or on the street."




 

 

Why use mass-produced plastic, when you can use beautifully hand-embroidered organza? Well, ok, I wouldn’t suggest that you actually use these soft sculptures to do your shopping, but you can certainly be jealous of the creativity and skill that American artist Lauren DiCioccio clearly put into each one of these lovely pieces. Here are a few words from Lauren about the project:

“This series is a response to the current movement to eliminate plastic bags from consumer use due to their negative environmental impact. Each one-of-a-kind sculpture is based on a plastic bag I have collected in a shop or on the street. I hand-embroider the icons and text onto bridal organza and then form the material into the life-sized shape of the bag. The sculptures are delicate ghosts of the original bags, mass-produced plastic replaced with soft, tediously worked fabric.”
