London based collective Studio Swine works with human hair as a renewable alternative to diminishing resources such as tortoise shell or tropical wood. Based around the notion of the ancient Silk Road, which transported not only silk but also technologies, aesthetics and ideas between East and West. Hair Highway explores the ideas of modern day cultural cross-overs in a collection of objects inspired by the Qing dynasty and the 1920’s Shanghai-Deco era.
