Commissioned by a large soft drink manufacturer (I presume Coca-Cola, but I don’t know), Artist Kosuke Tsumura created sets of armor and dresses out of plastic PET bottles, sewn together with transparant nylon thread. As Pink Tentacle points out, it may not be the strongest armor ever assembled, but it will last for many generations.
