Spanish design duo El Ultimo Grito is unveiling its latest design, Pet Shirts, in Manchester this Friday, 13 December. Pet Shirts are prototype shapes made from jersey and cotton designed to be filled with everyday clutter to transform into soft toy-like creatures. ‘They’re designed to be filled with objects people want to keep, but don’t use,’ explains El Ultimo Grito’s Roberto Feo. ‘It’s a fun way of turning clutter into something you love.’ The duo was commissioned by Manchester’s Castlefield Gallery, where they are giving a talk on Friday. Limited edition pets may be available next year, say Feo.
