Walter Raes's 'Tampon Top'

Tampons' halter top anyone? Actually, it is a beautiful piece isn't it? Hey, is not like Walter Raes, the British artist is using any used tampons but even we can't even imagine making anything out of this feminine-hygienic stuff like he does, right?

'Raes’ friends challenged his claims that anything can be fashioned into something you can wear...

“By grouping single tampons together, I created a complex but versatile top,” Raes tells Ecouterre. “The object you shy away from actually becomes beautiful.” And even though the tampon top isn’t made of recycled materials to begin with, it certainly is reusable—as long as you’ve stored it in a sanitary place, that is.'
