100% Jellyfish Leather
This project explores future applications of jellyfish, a resource becoming increasingly abundant due to overfishing and climate change. In 2009, huge numbers of Nomura’s jellyfish caused a serious problem for the Japanese fishing industry when masses overloaded the fishermen’s gear and equipment. In Asian countries, jellyfish are eaten as food, but jellyfish popularity can not compare to their overabundance. Dumping jellyfish as waste I see as a huge misuse of resources. The Jellyfish Leather can be cut, sewn and remoulded like cow leather. All the materials which are used for this leather production are organic and therefore biodegradable.
