Everyday we hear of the danger smoking can afflict on our bodies. Even though we are aware of the negative effects of cigarettes, over 47 million Americans still rely on this 1/4" x 3 1/4" cylindrical drug to get through the day. For most smokers, the act of smoking is a ritualistic activity; a unique event is created with every cigarette. But, the social stigma of smoking affects even the most dedicated smoker.

Cigarette Scarf takes the used cigarette butt and converts it into a personal artefact (a fabric). A scarf, adorned around the neck and body, is made of thousands of used and discarded cigarette butts.
