Fruit and Vegetable Fibres by Renée Boute
by sabine7 / March 3, 2014


Dutch artist and designer Renée Boute puts rejected produce to good use by making items out of fruit and vegetable fibres. Boute creates paper out of discarded peppers, eggplants, apples, strawberries and other produce from farms around the Netherlands, which she then can bind into books (such as recipe collections based on the fibres used). Taking her fibre work one step further, Boute also transforms the produce into vessels to hold specimens that are to be used for the original purpose. The work is delicately coloured by the natural, associated pigments, of course.
