Would You Ever Wear a Shirt With Human Hair in It?

Would You Ever Wear a Hair Shirt?

Over the weekend, I was walking by a building when I saw this (forgive the camera phone pic; it was all I had with me) in a window and stopped cold. "Is that . . . human hair?!" I thought to myself.

When I got closer, my stomach started to churn — the shirt is, in fact, made with what a little tag next to it called "buried hair." I don't even want to think about what that means. I know there's a long history of human hair being used for jewelry and as a memento, and maybe I'm just easily skeeved out by this art project, but would you wear something like this, or does it give you the creeps too?

Absolutely not.

My assumption is that the shirt isn't for sale as something to wear as much as it's a piece of art — though it's still not my favorite thing. Something about hair off the human body weirds me out.

disgusting. Plus, I agree with onlysourcherry (and everyone else who said the same). People are making money off this hair when it could've been given to those who need it! I think Locks of Love is wonderful - I've donated 3 times and wish more people would!!!

EW. I would NEVER wear this. I agree with you though, onlysourcherry, not to get all preachy, but instead of wearing a disgusting "hair shirt," couldn't it have been donated to someone who actually needs it?!

Not to get on a high horse, but couldn't that hair have been used for locks of love or something more valuable? Also, GROSS!

it makes me think of that Alanis album "Supposed Former,," cause the design on that book was her twisted hair. THAT was cool. This is hideous. lol
