Tape clothes are made almost entirely (or entirely) using Duck Tape, and crafters love the finished results. What’s more, it is a walking statement of your innovation and creativity that you can wear proudly among friends, loved ones, and even strangers.
History of Tape Clothes
Tape clothes are not a new phenomenon. In fact they were used to repair, reinforce and decorate clothing as early as 1920. At this time they were sewn into shoes or boots for reinforcement on either the upper sole, or the insole.
These days tape clothing is more about fashion than function, and it has become more popular than ever. The marketing director of ShurTech Brands, Scott Sommers is quoted, in a 2012 New York Times article, as saying, “Every year the dresses get more detailed and intricate, and the craftsmanship is unbelievable. …Duct tape is the new medium of self-expression.”
