Glue Gun Textiles and Couture

At Carnegie Mellon University’s yearly Lunar Gala Fashion Show, Industrial Designer Miriam Buchwald showcased COCOON, her line of dresses made totally of hot glue.

She didn’t hot glue fabric. She MADE the textiles out of hot-glue, which has expanded our view of hot glue’s possibility greatly, way beyond crafty Martha Stewart.

Glue gun disks and filaments…think of the possibilities for furniture construction, room screens, window treatments, sculptures…

Buchwald used both Adtek Cordless Glue and Professions glue guns. We’ve never lusted after a glue gun before, but Adtek’s cordless model  seems like a great, very convenient one to have.
