‘Spinning a Yarn’ using Newspapers…..

I had earlier written about Newspaper you can Use in my earlier post. This design by Greetje van Tiem, a graduate from Design Academy Eindhoven, takes that idea even further. She has found a distinctive and creative way to recycle old newspapers that have been sitting around.

van Tiem completed a project that she calls Indruk, which turns newspapers into yarn, and although not quite the same as regular yarn, it can be spun tighter and woven into something like a mat to be nearly as durable and functional. She says that it is possible to transpose yesterday’s news into tangible memories.These newspaper threads can be woven into products like rugs, curtains and upholstery for the home, to help create a very distinguishing look.
