SEOUL, Nov. 18 (Korea Bizwire) — South Korean fashion company Kolon Industries FnC announced Tuesday its outdoor sportswear brand Kolon Sports has developed an eco-friendly, biodegradable mannequin.
The mannequin, unlike other models made of fiber-reinforced plastic, is made of sawdust and eco-friendly adhesive.
No harmful substances are emitted during the course of manufacturing since no chemical-based hardeners are used.
Mannequins are normally replaced every year because of aging, harming the environment since they aren’t biodegradable.
Kolon Sports installed the new mannequins at the company’s Hannam flagship store in Seoul. The mannequins will be tested before being installed in five or six additional stores.
