Seatbelt Fashion

Posted on June 3, 2010

Safety belt fabric is woven in such a way that it can support a huge amount of weight and pressure—up to 6,000 pounds without breaking. The same strength that makes safety belts lifesavers in a car crash makes them highly durable in another form you might not suspect—as a handbag. A company called Harveys discovered this, and now they have a booming business crafting seatbelts into fashion statements.

This post from the Harveys blog details how one girl had the seatbelts from her first car made into a wearable memento.
