New eco friendly fashion : recycle your own Pet's fur

Erwan Fichou is a (very) talentuous photographer who made a serie called "Dogwool", portraits of dog owner who knit and wear sweaters and vests made from their own pet fur. That's the absolute (IMHO...) "save the planet" action, the ultimate sustainable growth policy. Shouldn't pet owner obliged to wear these warm sweats ?

For those interested in this new fashion, just read the book by Anne Montgomery and Kendal Crolius, Knitting with dog hair. As they write :

"Better a sweater from a dog you know and love than from a sheep you'll never meet".

As Baudelaire wrote "Ce qu'il y a d'enivrant dans le mauvais goût, c'est le plaisir aristocratique de déplaire" / " What is exhilarating in bad taste is the aristocratic pleasure of giving offense".
