This Artist Upcycles Textile Waste Into Beautiful And Elegant Resin Stools


Designer Ammar Kalo has found a beautiful new use for discarded textiles in fabrications, a series of resin stools topped with colorful pieces of fabric. After the fabric is carefully arranged by hand, Kalo traps the pieces of cloth in resin that’s cured until solid. The low-tech production requires few raw materials.

“While the prototypes are produced using general purpose polyester resin, the intention is to make larger quantities using green resin, bio plastic, or bio resin in order to make a more ‘green’ product,” says Kalo.
