Student creates wooden jeans

A student has created a pair of eco-jeans that are made from wood.

Dawn Ellams has created the denims as part of a PHD project at the School of Textiles and Design in Galashiels.

They have been made from a sustainable material that is created by pulping wood, which does not use pesticides like cotton production.

The denim effect has been printed on digitally, a process that uses a fifth less water, energy and chemicals than it takes to dye a conventional pair of jeans.
