WHAT IS MUSICCLTOH® ?

MusicCloth® is an innovative up-cycle material made of discarded cassette tapes and video tapes. The tapes consist of polyester film with metallic coatings, which could otherwise be considered a waste material.

The material is woven in a basket weave pattern, which allows stability and durability. Cloth edge finished in a smooth finishing. Each MusicCloth® owns its own unique colours combination and patterns.

MusicCloth® has been widely acclaimed around the world - its swatches have been stored and are available in Material ConneXion® Library & the University of Pennsylvania material lab. This material has been exhibited at TEDx as one of the 'ideas worth spreading'. Rehyphen® was also selected by British TV host Kevin McCloud as 'Top 7 Green Heroes', and showcased in London Grand Design and NYC x Design in 2018 & 2019 as a "NEW alarm" and a modern method of what it means to build an object.

Red Dot Design Museum also included MusicCloth® as '100 global social design' in their museum collection in 2020.
