The Scraplights of Graypants arise from the collection of boxes and cardboard discarded packaging that are then cut into thin shapes and hand-assembled to create a lot of different forms.
The idea of the designers is just to inject new life into a material inert intended for pulping, such as cardboard and use creativity in an innovative and responsible.
