Boot designer brings old bags to heel

Chilean designer Camila Labra has designed a range of women’s footwear made from recycled plastic bags.

The Dacca Boots – named after the city of Dhaka, which banned plastic bags in 2002 – are made by fusing together several layers of PE bags.

"I realised that there was a lot of plastic bags in my home and that everyone used them like a trash bag,” said Labra.

"I was sure you could do something more useful with them than that and then one day I saw people putting them on their feet to stop their shoes getting wet. It was then that I realised the bags would be great for making boots."
