Artist Knits Clothing Using Recycled Newspaper Yarn [Pics]
Ivano Vitali sorts his printed material by color instead of using dyes to create upcycled fashion pieces.

Italian artist, ecologist and sculptor Ivano Vitali weaves unique garments made from recycled newspapers. He tears the material into strips, painstakingly sorting it into different colors so he can create pieces in the hue he desires without having to use dyes.
He then twists the paper into balls of yarn, and uses large custom-made needles and hooks made from wood to knit and crochet the material into upcycled and innovative fashion items like dresses, bikinis and shawls.
