Lingerie Made From Recycled Christmas Trees


Forget the mistletoe when you can have lingerie made from recycled Christmas trees. This will bring back a rise to any Christmas spirit left in you all year round. Sophie Young chemically processes evergreen trees to create a functional fabric.

"A French company is showing that it’s possible to turn pine trimmings into a soft fabric that can be used to make panties, bras, or slips. The new fabric was the brainchild of an architect who originally wanted to find another use for tree trimmings that couldn’t be used in construction.

After the wood is transformed with an enzyme bath, it feels like silk. “It’s soft to the touch,” says designer Sophie Young, founder of Do You Green. “You won’t want to wear anything else after touching it. It’s very smooth and thin."
