Don't just eat dinner - wear it
Sunday 13 February 2011
If you really loved your meal at one New York restaurant, you can now walk out with the skin of the animal you ate.
Marlow & Sons, an eaterie in the city's trendy Williamsburg neighborhood, wants clients to be able to remember their meals forever by purchasing items such as bags made from the hide of cows and other animals served up from the kitchen.
"We want something people could enjoy beyond their dinner," Kate Huling, wife of the owner, told AFP. "They come in, they eat, they leave and usually think of something else. So the bags really preserve and honor that animal."
Belts, wallet and hats and sweaters using wool and rabbit fur will also be on offer once the animal in question has been eaten.
The idea will be a boon for struggling local tanneries and the New York fashion industry, Huling said.
