plastic strapping, shirts, buttons

 

White collar workers wear shirts to work. These shirts are from my now retired husbands’ collection. They have been recycled into this long slender cylinder, which has been woven on a plastic structure.  The buttons taken from the shirts were resewn to adorn the surface and create the button down collar.
