Danelle German took her job as a cat groomer and turned it into an accessories empire with her company Catty Shack Creations, where she creates handbags out of dog and cat hair.
After years of sweeping up and trashing what she calls, piles of beautiful hair and thinking what a shame, German began weaving cat hair into purses and selling them.
Most people custom order bags made from their cuddly kittens and canines, and German says shes received strange requests.
She recounts, One lady wanted me to make a bag out of hair she saved from her dead poodle but also wanted me to weave in hair clippings from her two pet monkeys. We called it the monkey-poo bag.
Though she only makes handbags, German says people have requested blankets, scarves, and pillows made from pet hair, but admits it would take an insane amount of hair to do it.
