Cat groomer recycles cat hair into purses

Updated Apr 29, 2022

When Danelle German sees a Persian Cat come into her grooming salon, her heart skips a beat. That’s because  many people want their Persian cats shaved for easy maintanence and Danelle uses the leftover hair in a lucrative recycling business. She spins the cat hair into a silky yarn to produce one-of-a-kind handbags that sell for between $45 and $400. She apparently has sold these handbags all over the world. Great idea or way out there? Depends on who you are — and if the purse is made from your cat’s hair.
