Tissue Cut / Tissue paper

Tissue Cut
Tissue Cut

When a drop of water falls on the table, we take a tissue to wipe it. Though only 10 % of the tissue is used, we still see it as 100% trash that should be discarded. Therefore, we waste 90% of the tissue, the unused resources.
The sizes of tissues set by manufacturers are not suitable for every purpose and situation. The concept provides smaller units for people to customize the sizes of tissues which they really need.
The features of the holes on tissues make it easy to tear down the tissues. And, the holes can be regarded as visual marks for evaluating the length of tissues we need. Besides, the tree-shaped holes will constantly remind us that trees are felled when we tear down every tissue. We should conserve energy and resources from every detail in our daily lives.
