Dawn Ellams, who has invented a pair of 'wooden' jeans, hopes that the eco-jean could eventually hit the High Street.
"To look at an iconic product like the jeans, and as a designer think, how can I turn this on it's head, and re-invent it, and how the alternatives of design and making something better but still that is a jean, it was more challenging I think than difficult.
"They are a niche product, they are not going to replace the iconic jean, but there is a place in the market for it.
"If you are in a hotter climate they are perfect because they are light and breathable.
"It is definitely a viable option."
Business Development Manager of the School, Jim McVee, helped Dawn on the project.
"He said it is not just wood that material can be made from now: It is the trend to move towards regenerated fibres.
"We use anything we can now: wood, potato starch, even milk.
"There are loads of natural process which can be used to make fibre."
